N_omic Epic Poem current as of April 19th, 2001.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
There lived a small furry creature of a species never known to mankind.
Its name was Oorkado.
Oorkado lived in a beautiful land filled with flowers of all kinds.
(Is that poetry? Looks like prose so far. Harrumph.)
Unfortunately, Oorkado was allergic to pollen.
He spent most of his days sneezing uncontrollably.
Oorkado then got together with all of his buddies.
They formed a secret club dedicated to burning down the fields of flowers.
