A song composed during 6Pi-Con, the convention held during Hurricane Irene. Fortunately for everyone at the con, Irene didn't affect northern Connecticut too badly, so this song is largely a work of fiction.
To the tune of Irene Goodnight
I went down to the convention
For to see the geeks at play
The weather there it was so nice
I could not help but stay
I went to check out the vendors
I went to play some games
But I did not expect the special guest
She was a hurricane
Goodnight Irene goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams
The rain came down in torrents
We could not leave the hotel
I said "should I extend my stay"
They said "you might as well"
Filkers sleep in the filk room
Vendors sleep in the hall
LARPers sleep with all their gear
And con staff don't sleep at all
And me, I sleep in the con suite
I have nowhere to stay
I can't go back to Boston now
My house has blown away
