Three guys are writing a textbook
give and take across the parsecs
should we include this, trim that
one author accelerating
ramscoop style
his contributions and edits
fewer and farther between
harder and harder to pull
out of the random noise
the two earthbound authors thinking
they're doing more
dealing with editors, publishers, reviewers
universities and bookstores
who's going to use it in their classes
this is all on them
plus, they kinda need the money.

And if their jaunting colleague
ever does come back and sue
who's he gonna call?
they'll be long dead by then
