"I am the very master of the Multipurpose metaphor,
I put them into speeches which I always feel the better for,
The speed of my delivery is totally vehicular,
I'm burning with a passion about nothing in particular,
I'm well acquainted too with matters technological,
I'm able to explain myself in phrases tautological,
My language is poetical and full of hidden promises...
It's like the raging torrent of a thousand Dylan Thomases."

(with credit to "I am the very model..." from Pinafore!)
