Once upon a midnight dreary,
Ross G pondered, weak and weary
Whether Ross D might consider him a dry and awful bore—
If he proposed some gentle chatting, sprinkled with some caveating,
A pod with almost no formatting, on an essay he’d adored.
“’Tis about unity of effect in learning design,” he muttered, “by Edgar Allan Poe—
Only this and nothing more.”
