• Where Does the Wikipedian Fall? / by Omer Toledano

    The sky up above
    The Earth down below
    The valley runs deep
    The river does flow
    The flower in bloom
    And this tree grows so tall
    As he gazed out at them
    He kept asking himself
    Where does the Wikipedian fall?

    And to every astronomer
    And author a name
    And to every king in existence
    Whom the throne did he claim
    To every painting and artist
    With a place down the hall
    He asked with a sigh
    Where does the Wikipedian fall?

    To every event that was dreary
    And physical theory
    Every book that was sold
    And places so eery

    Every music and lyric
    Known to man's ears
    Birds of the heavens
    And bison and deers
    And historical facts
    And post-war pacts
    And fictional figures
    And theatrical acts
    From the Hollywood sign
    To China's Great Wall
    He asked once again
    Where does the Wikipedian fall?

    And despite all he's done
    He really did love it
    Like the Gurus he followed
    He was from the world
    But not of it
    He knew for a fact
    That his knowledge was small
    As that old man once said
    We can't harness it all
    He bears silent witness
    As he answers the call
    And continues to ask to this day
    Where does the Wikipedian fall?
