Thank you, Tom

We gather to thank Tom Yin
For all he's done and been.
His work on whence comes sound,
From up or down or all around
Or from one or the other side,
Is cited and respected far and wide.
What good are moving heads and ears?
To track meals and enemies and peers.

Tom's also been our valued leader.
And of divisions he's been a healer.
He gave us the chance to learn,
He gave us the chance to earn,
Gradually, one another's trust
By working hard and being just.
Finally his difficult job is done;
Thanks to Tom we're truly one.
