He dined on clergyman cold and raw,
A portion of which got stuck in his craw
The very last meal that he ever saw!
The King of the Cannibal Islands!

Oh, Hokey-pokey, winky wung
Callimaroo, Callimarung

Were not bequeathing his lands or gold
But warning them all against clergyman cold!
The King of the Cannibal Islands!

Their results suggest that most black hole growth takes place in dusty galaxies, solving astronomer's headaches, as until now, the cosmic x-ray background suggested the existence of more growing black holes than they could find."
