In response to the latest Belkin brouhaha, I was inspired..

** Every Packet's Sacred **

// With apologies to Mr.'s Palin, Jones, Cerf & Metcalf //

There are POTS in the world.
There are Tokens.
There are Arcnets and fibre channels, and then
There are those that send in Morse, but
I've never been one of them.

I'm an Ethernet Router,
And have been since before I was spec'd,
And the one thing they say about Routers is:
The data they pass on is perf'ct.

You don't have to be hundred meg' T.
You don't have to have a VPN.
You don't have to have DHCP on. You're
A Router the moment you're plugedin!,

Because...
Every packet's sacred.
Every packet's great.
If a packet is wasted,
Vint gets quite irate.

Let the Belkins 'jack theirs -
and have a pop-up spawn.
Metcalf'll make them pay for
Each packet that's not passed on.

Every packet's wanted.
Every packet's good.
Every packet's needed
In your neighbourhood.

RIAA, Studios, Lawyers,
Want to block yours any time,
But Vint loves those who treat their
Packets as sublime.

Every packet's sacred.
Every packet's great.
If a packet is wasted,...
...Vint gets quite irate.

Every packet's useful.
Every packet's fine.
the Net sends ev'rybody's.
Mine!
And mine!
And mine!

Let the Censors spill theirs
O'er "beaver", "breast", and "cocaine".
Metcalf'll strike them down for
Each packet that's dropped in vain.

Every packet's sacred.
Every packet's good.
Every packet's needed
In your neighbourhood.

Every packet's sacred.
Every packet's great.
If a packet is wasted,
Vint gets quite iraaaaaate!
