And those who were seen dancing
were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music...

Oooo I know where this one is headed.  "Pinball: Quarter Time" right?  One of my favorites, and undeniably nerdy.

Also, since that poem runs longer than some governorships (too soon?), it's a great poem to read when you're trying to fill time.  Plus, if you read it really well, don't make any mistakes, you'll hear a sharp, staccato >knock!< and that means once the poem ends you can read it all over again for free.  (Too meta?)

Go to and the address is there.  Good luck!
