Where have all the publishers gone?

The following "poem" can be sung to the tune of Where Have All the Flowers Gone by Pete Seeger.Where have all the publishers gone? Since ebooks came to be. Where have all the publishers gone? Since Apple befriended them. Where have all the publishers gone? Steve Jobs fooled every one.

They've gone to find salvation elsewhere,
They've gone to find another savior.
Oh, when will publishers ever learn?
Oh, when will publishers ever learn?

Where have all the newspapers gone?
Since epapers came to be.
Where have all the newspapers gone?
Since Apple befriended them.
Where have all the newspapers gone?
Steve Jobs fooled every one.

They've gone to find salvation elsewhere,
They've gone to find another savior.
Oh, when will newspapers ever learn?
Oh, when will newspapers ever learn?

Where have all the iPad readers gone?
Since ebooks came to be.
Where have all the iPad readers gone?
Since Apple befriended them.
Where have all the iPad readers gone?
Steve Jobs fooled every one.

They've gone to find salvation elsewhere,
They've gone to find another savior.
Oh, when will iPad readers ever learn?
Oh, when will iPad readers ever learn?

Oh, when will the hopeful ever learn?
Oh, when will the hopeful ever learn?
That Apple is for Apple and not for everyone!
