Was solace to the soul-less sent,
When they learned they needn't die :
When one day when our wonder went,
A Download someone tried?
(When rains of writes put brains of bytes
Into ASCII format,
Do non-hypostatic hypothalmic hypocrites
Hyperbolically hypothesise non-hypertrophic re-use as doormats? )
Did soul-ful cry, with sorrow full,
``Eternity found where ?''
Did wizened wizards wisely wail,
``On CD-Rom, just there!''
(Could digits then be digitised,
Could hand and feet and socks?
Would Krishnas crassly criticise
The conversion of their locks?
Could the Trinity into binary
Be converted without a glitch?
For [NOT and AND and OR] XOR 3
Could make us worship Six!)
When lumps of me are dumped to tape,
Will my bad bits be on show -
My gaping gaps of grappling ape -
Does anybody know?
Would mirely cults of the miraculous
Fade out when scans began?
Or can we trust enough of us
To make problems for our plans :
``Did any thoughtware surgeons think,
Of one in a jam like me?
Or are no such finks ever jinxed,
By a RAM with CJD? ''
