Ode to MP3

Tweaked, played, rewound, made.
Processed, encoded, compressed, downloaded.
Bored, written, stored, smitten.
Better codec, download more tech.

Napster share, all is fair.
RIAA running, just a scare.
Network wide, lots to hide.
Who’s to say what’s really there?

Orrin Hatch met his match.
Creative debt, cast the net.
Legislate, that’s your fate.
Internet: what can I get?

Got a pipe. Believe the hype.
Download now. Download how?
Quicker see, look no fee.
Serve: allow, take a bow.

Don’t call Orrin, server’s foreign.
Hack my router, break my ‘puter
Logic bomb, no dot com.
Not a looter – wanna neuter?

Encode, (LAME), TagRename.
Play geek! SoulSeek.
Mac iTunes, Hilary ruins.
DMCA: what a cheek!
