Taco Tuesday: Write a poem about Trello

Monique vdB Community Manager Nov 16, 2021

Screen Shot 2021-11-16 at 10.09.03 AM.png

It's Taco Tuesday! Congratulations to @Paloma Fondon Araujo who offers a Butler to-do list tip. Taco will be making their way to you soon, Paloma! 

This week, let's dive into some poetry about Trello! One person will, as always, be randomly selected to win their own Taco plushie. I will go first. 

Roses are red
Taco is cute
Trello is agile
And useful to boot!

It helps run my day
And it isn't hard
Just create a new list
Then add a few cards

I like moving stuff
From "to do" to "it's done"
I love you Trello!
You're my number one!

There once was a tool called Trello

Which was used by many a fine fellow

It's easy to use

You really can't lose

Organizing work can make you mellow

Trello isn´t just for blue
Its also for YOU!
Organize anything
And be on top of everything
Take Trello app on the go
so you can be in the flow

You had me at "Hello", now we shall never say goodbye!
Learning all the automation, made this grown man cry!
From custom fields to pretty covers, and all that's in between;
A new world opened up my eyes, one I'd never before seen 🗺👀

A Butler here, a Power Up there,
and soon the cards were fading.
As Epics unfolded, and projects completed,
The nerdy fire was raging 🤓🔥

You helped me in my times of need, when stressed out to the max,
but also doing a good deed, or planning in some snacks. 🥕🥐

I need you more than ever now,
Don't you dare ever let me go.
For you and I, we are now one,
Fun Man Andy, and his Trello 😎💙

Alicia's a huge Trello fan
It helps her to work and to plan
It's sweeter than candy
She agrees with our Andy
Whose Trello makes him a Fun Man!

I wonder what Trello is for me.

Andy is better than me as a Trello fan,

but I will always be a fan of Trello as best as I can

Ode to @Brittany Joiner 

There once was a woman named Joiner
Our product did not disappoint her
If a person says "Hello,
tell me about Trello?"
She'll certainly give you a pointer!

Bobby's first deadline, hours getting longer
He thought this will be a piece of cake
He couldn't be wronger
His PM looks like he's about to pull out a machete,
Bobby's hands are sweaty,
Code looks like Moms Spaghetti,
If there only was a way to organise this workload,
to tell me if I should use PHP, C# or JS Node,
Bobby remembered wise words of his fellow,
A proper Hackerman, who recommended Trello,
This moment is Bobbys' `to be or not to be`,
His notes are forever scattered in Sublime Text 3,
He now copies them and pastes into tidy tickets,
His hands in surgical moves, performing all those quick cuts,
"The night is still young" - he said quietly while pressing
Keys on his mechanical keyboard - "at least I am progressing!"
Few hours have passed, Bobby like tornado
spinning tickets, writing methods, molding code like play-doh,
By the morning he was done, software was released,
"What a Beast!" His PM complimented, 
Stress levels decreased,
"Trello was the answer!" he proudly exclaimed
"You should be ashamed for not using this gem!"

I was never good at poetry, I've seen some real geniuses here! but here's mine, may Walt Whitman forgive me for this version...🙏🙏 (it almost doesn't rhyme...)

Oh, captain, my captain, our cards are finished,
Our board is empty, the prize we sought is won,
Delivery is near, notifications have stopped, people are cheering,
As we check the empty board and sing a song;

Greetings!

From my daughter who loves using Trello:

 

What a beautiful site 
And you all know I'm right
When you use Trello
Organization says, "Hello"!
Clutter and procrastination walk out the door
And with the fun backgrounds it's never a bore 
Taco the mascot makes sure you're on task
So that your boss will never have to ask,
"Where's this and where's that? You're a mess, dear lord!"
When you use this wonderful online board

I hope I'm not too late @Monique vdB but here goes nothing...

Entitled... The board member and the Trello-verse 

The board member and the Trello-verse designed a workspace

In a beautiful pacific-bridge board,
They took some cards, and plenty of tasks,
Wrapped up with automations and custom fields.
The board member looked up to the timelines above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Trello! O Trello, my love,
What a beautiful Trello workspace you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Trello workspace you are!"

II
Trello-verse said to the board member, "You elegant user!
How charmingly sweet you work!
O let us be more! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a board admin?"
They designed away, for a year and a day,
To the world where team collaboration grows
And there in a workspace Taco the dog stood
With premium features in the palm of his paw,
His paw,
His paw,
With premium features in the palm of his paw.

III
"Dear Taco, are you willing to sell for ten dollars
Your premium features?" Said Taco the dog, "I will."
So they took it away, and were admins next day
By Chorizo the cat who sleeps on the hill.
They dined on Power-Ups, and slices of dashboard views,
Which they worked with an awesome team;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the clouds,
They danced by the light of the workspace,
The workspace,
The workspace,
They danced by the light of the workspace.

Disclaimer: This poem was in no way related to The Owl and the Pussy-Cat before you ask 🤪  I hope everyone agrees though The Owl and the Pussy-Cat is a great poem (it was also one of my favourites growing up)!

Thank you @Monique vdB I popped my creative hat on and had so much fun doing this 😄  thank you as well for magicing up this challenge I thoroughly enjoyed it!

There's no chance of me writing a poem for myself, it's just not a skill I have.  I will plaigairise and adapt other poems I like though.


  • While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping.
  • As of some one gently trotting, trotting 'cross my office floor...
  • "Thou hast posted," I muttered, "I shan't move your cards no more."
  • Quoth the Taco: "Card me more."

  • A thousand hairy savages,
  • Sitting down to lunch,
  • That needs Trello to organise,
  • Munch, munch, munch.

I humbly apologise to both Edgar Allan Poe and Spike Milligan, who are probably spinning in their graves as I type.
I also apologise for the formatting, Community doesn't seem to be understanding line-breaks today.

I made the mistake of winging a few things when trying to install Linux on my 2012 mbp. So this would be Trello gaming me up :P

 

The only look for what I’m witnessing, off to work, halfway through installing and partitioning.

Be humble and start slow, lofi and python, basic building blocks bro, white rice and the daikon.

It’s the only look your gonna git, boot files’ gone, and here you wonder where it went

Peep game now you notice nuance and nomenclature. 

Update your noggins node, because before white hat first learn how to code.

Wow! This is amazing, thank you very much! Taco will guard my PC from now on! I just must make sure to let Taco know to not come close to the keyboard - that belongs to my cat apparently :)

Wow..awesome!  My daughter will be so excited to hear about this and even more about hugging Taco!
