To the tune of "The House of the Rising Sun"

There is a new house on the street
They call The Random Penguin
It's the product of a dozen mergers
And another sign of the end.

Publishing and high finance
Have come to a common theme:
A single company for all your goods
And one .com for distributing

Now the only thing a publisher needs
Is a B. A. and POD machine
This levels out the playing field:
Everyone else and Stephen King.

Oh, agents, go tell your authors
That unless they're Ursula LeGuin
You won't be able to sell their manuscripts
To the House of the Random Penguin
