The Emperor's BlackBerry

  @FortuneMagazine May 21, 2013: 4:16 PM ET

Long ago, in the Forbidden City
An Emperor sat upon a golden throne.
He spent all day in meeting and committee
And he was always busy, and alone.

But when there was a pause in his proceedings
He went into his fine and private place
Suspended all his pleasantries and greetings
And all the other nonsense in his face
