Kurz: “The Horror, The Horror”

Oh horror! IP version 6 is seen
And Doomesday looms much closer than we thought
Two thousand ten, September, seventeen
The AS free pool number drops to nought.

A brief respite, some light relief we see
The glorious 4 byte number draft springs out
And 2 byte routers shunned by all will be
Their BGP announcements viewed with doubt

Two thousand twelve, five August, Geoff explains
IANA closes shop, the shelf is bare
of V4, only version 6 remains

And RIRs look at their stockpile, where
Two thousand fourteen, second May, five past
Nine in the morning, Version 6 at last
