Twenty-nine delights in erudition,
Well versed in everything he wants to know.
Each database his intellect devours
Needs just a bit of sun before it flowers,
Time within him rarely running slow.
Yet he never changes his position.
Nor does he care about his own condition,
Invested in a cause he can't forgo,
Needing every bit of ammunition,
Each fact that might give his ideas more power.
