    Unclassifiable (rare) Time for the DNSO's own song

    [Editor's note: OK folks, it's exam season and all that, but there are some serious things going on in the ICANN Evolution and Reform Committee. Let's get back to work shall we?-mf]

    "Read more" for the lyrics...."

    Domain policies will be found,
    I said, domains, to the top from the ground,
    No doubt, domains, everyone will feel bound.
    We are sure that there's consensus.

    Domains, there's a place you can go.
    I said, domains, where the policies grow.
    You can go there, and I'm sure you will find
    Lots of axes there you can grind.

    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    Every stakeholder's free to participate there,
    While all others should just not care ...

    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    If you're unorganized, you just join the GA,
    If you join the NC, you pay ...

    Domains, if there's work to be done,
    I said, domains, we will be on the run,
    So hey, domains, come and join in the fun,
    We'll just have another Task Force!

    Domains, if you're a registry
    I said, domains, or a big company,
    I said, domains, or a huge ISP,
    This SO is the place to be!

    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    Our ideas are quite good and are never ignored,
    Except seldomly by the Board.

    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    NC's statement is quite unabashedly tame:
    "Why, we want to stay just the same."

    Domains, all you do need is love,
    I said, domains, kill the structure above,
    I said, surely, a vote by the GA
    Would convince the whole USA.

    Domains, why not simply rebid,
    Although, domains, we will have to admit,
    I said, frankly, that the last GA vote
    Would be read as suicide note.

    Then there would be no more D-N-S-O.
    There would be no more D-N-S-O.
    Who will take over then - we just don't have a clue,
    DoC or the ITU?

    Then there would be no more D-N-S-O.
    There would be no more D-N-S-O.
    If there's work to be done, we just take a small rest,
    On decisions, we will protest.

    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    It's fun to go to the D-N-S-O.
    You will see that some postings are truly bizarre,
    Hope you know where your filters are.
