I know a highly acclaimed young man
From the Crimean Republic of Ukraine,

Its capital is Kiev, the Mother of Cities,
"Computer" is his middle name,

He will get a degree, I feel quite certain,
When he's twenty, or maybe nineteen,

Fortunately, Alex gets to visit the states --
In college courses he's seen,

The man sends E-mail from a laptop
Computer, and some might resent

All his trips to this country -- North America --
At his school, he's not always present,

We'll likely see him get a Master's degree,
In Computer Science, of course,

He might, in his thirties, be a VIP,
But he won't get the cart before the horse.
