    Circular humor:
    Downvote the poem itself!
    Nah. Mean, not funny...

    Blah. Need more coffee.

    There's a reason
    why ranting on trolling monks
    's done nameless.
    Downvoting isn't fun
    if you think about it tho
    not that they would have.
    votes are ok I guess,
    for merlyn as well.
    If anyone should
    ask you who I am, just say
    it was a troll monk.

    you get downvoted
    complain and write some haiku
    and get more downvotes

    then as usual
    you harvest the sucker vote
    frontpage your own node

    so next time you see
    an azatoth node up front
    you know what to do
