Remote and ineffectual Don,

Where have you gone, where have you gone?

Don interfacing, Don interactive,

Don returned as research-active;

Don inspected and Don assessed,

Don internationally ranked with the best;

Don on a jet, Don at the screen,

Don on the Net, Don never seen;

Don with modem, Don with homepage,

Don in lockup, Don in e-rage.

Webmaster Don, write-faster Don,

Gay Rasta Don, Doncaster Don,

Newly hired Don, hard-wired Don,

Very tired Don, easily fired Don;

Don in a garage, Don in a loft,

Don and his start-up, the new Microsoft;

Don taken over, Don selling shares,

Don playing games of electronic chairs;

Don at Stanford - or is it MIT? -

Don who scores in the RAE;

Don off the scale, Don with a deal,

Don masterminding the alumni appeal;

Don on the board, Don director,

Don a power in the private sector.

Remote and ineffectual Don,

Where have you gone, where have you gone?
