In '96 poor Forbes was thought
To be less zealous than he ought
To be on things like baby-killing.
So now he's showing that he's willing
To say whatever wackos say

He's changed his hair. He's tried to change
That speaking style that seemed so strange.
His will to change is indisputable,
But dorkiness is quite immutable.
