ALL SAID & DONE
Would you like to be real, Wikipedia-real,
With your name all in black and your links all in blue,
What the students will find when they’re searching for you?
Would you like to be wise, Wikipedia-wise,
With the best of your work all precise and unchanged,
And the footnotes and references neatly arranged?
Would you like to be known, Wikipedia-known,
For your clever remarks and your depth of good sense?
Then you’d better get down to your past perfect tense.
