The young man of a place with a long name

There was a young man of Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu,
Since the name was so long and he could not pronounce it he migrated to the tropical Pacific island paradise of Oahu,
Where he wrote horrid limericks,
and raised well-bred gavericks -
that escapist young man of Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu

Guess how I found this blog? Was not aware of it so far. Was curious about your "never more than a safe conduit for some genes." and searched for it on google :). Anyway, would you let me quot you and use that phrase? Finding it very apt.
