We mutter adieu now to Steve,
Who finally decided to leave.
We thought he might never be done
With buying his place in the sun.

So is there some lesson in why
His gilt-edged campaign failed to fly?
The theories that pundits now share
Are nuanced, and full of hot air.

So now they can listen to mine:
To paraphrase old Gertrude Stein,
Though Forbes could give barrels of pork,
A dork is a dork is a dork.
