    The sons of the Prophet are brave men and bold
    And quite unaccustomed to fear
    But the bravest by far in the ranks of the Shah
    Was Abdul Abulbul Amir

    If you wanted a man to encourage the van
    Or harass the foe from the rear
    Storm fort or redoubt, you had only to shout
    For Abdul Abulbul Amir

    Now the heroes were plenty and well known to fame
    In the troops that were led by the Czar
    And the bravest of these was a man by the name
    Of Ivan Skavinsky Skavar

    One day this bold Russian, he shouldered his gun
    And donned his most truculent sneer
    Downtown he did go where he trod on the toe
    Of Abdul Abulbul Amir

    "Young man," quoth Abdul, "Has life grown so dull
    That you wish to end your career?
    Vile infidel know, you have trod on the toe
    Of Abdul Abulbul Amir"

    "So take your last look at the sunshine and brook
    And send your regrets to the Czar
    For by this I imply, you are going to die
    Count Ivan Skavinsky Skavar"

    "My friend, your remarks in the end
    Will avail you but little, I fear
    For you ne'er will survive to repeat them alive
    Mister Abdul Abulbul Amir"

    Then this bold Mameluke drew his trusty skibouk
    Singing, "Allah! Il Allah! Al-lah!"
    And with murderous intent he ferociously went
    For Ivan Skavinsky Skavar

    They parried and thrust, they side-stepped and cussed
    Of blood they spilled a great part
    The philologist blokes, who seldom crack jokes
    Say that hash was first made on the spot

    They fought all that night neath the pale yellow moon
    The din, it was heard from afar
    And huge multitudes came, so great was the fame
    Of Abdul and Ivan Skavar

    As Abdul's long knife was extracting the life
    In fact he was shouting, "Huzzah!"
    He felt himself struck by that wily Calmuck
    Count Ivan Skavinsky Skavar

    The Sultan drove by in his red-breasted fly
    Expecting the victor to cheer
    But he only drew nigh to hear the last sigh
    Of Abdul Abulbul Amir

    Czar Petrovich, too, in his spectacles blue
    Sauntered up in his gold-plated car
    And arrived just in time to exchange a last line
    With Ivan Skavinsky Skavar

    There's a tomb rises up where the Blue Danube rolls
    And engraved there in characters clear
    Is, "Stranger, when passing, oh pray for the soul
    Of Abdul Abulbul Amir"

    A splash in the Black Sea one dark moonless night
    Caused ripples to spread wide and far
    It was made by a sack fitting close to the back
    Of Ivan Skavinsky Skavar

    A Muscovite maiden her lone vigil keeps
    Neath the light of the cold northern star
    And the name that she murmurs in vain as she weeps
    Is Ivan Skavinsky Skavar

    1. Holy crap, I found a paper of mine on the role of standards in electronics manufacturing processes. That's probably like the least ENFP thing in the world.

    2. Also, that was apparently back when my CV was literally a page long. Geez.

    3. Whatever, I also found my 30 page design document for a synth bass guitar petal I designed and built for a class. It would be impressive if it weren't double-spaced. Hahaha, I remember thinking this was hard to write, and here I am working on a dissertation.

    4. This thread, "Random Thought Thread" is like the 10th result for a search on "random thought thread." What the hell, vBulletin!?

    5. Also, you can't search for "Fi" or "Te" or "Type 3"! What the hell, vBulletin!?
