But, alas, I’m too tired,
So I haven’t the time or energy to finish the last line.

Twinkle twinkle little star
Illuminating from afar
The changes in a form or word
We haven’t seen but just inferred.
—Pumptilian Perniquity

But the reasons for this
Aren’t so mysterious—
Their department produces more profits.

D is your Dedication that is plain to see

O is for Oh so many! ways you plussed my work today.
R is for the royalties I am so glad you pay.
—Col. O. Nihilist
