Where Have All the Sixes Gone?

by Elizabeth Emerald

To be sung to Where Have All the Flowers Gone?
Where have all the sixes gone?
Long time since I got one
Where have all the sixes gone?
Lord hear my plea

Where have all the sixes gone?
Gone to others, every one
When will they ever learn!
Save some for me!

Where have all the sixes gone?
Good news: they changed the rule!
They're sure to come my way
Since there's no cap

Where have all the sixes gone?
Alas, I still have none
When will I ever learn
My work's mere pap


Alas, the "six-cap" still stands: we are thus doomed to excellence.

This is not a serious solicitation! DO NOT feel obliged to gave me a six for this silly song out of sympathy for my lament! I wrote this as a tongue-in-cheek spoof on our star-system with some self-deprecating humor tossed in.
