For Mark with apologies to Leonard Cohen

They sentenced me to three years of fandom

For herding hippos up river from New York

They are coming now, they’re coming to reward them

The hippos take Manhattan, then they eat Berlin

They’re guided by the rocket in the Hugos

They’re guided by the tuskmarks on their skin

They’re guided by the beauty of our hippos

The hippos take Manhattan, then they eat Berlin
