Weíre very sorry, Eddie Farhi
Your algorithmís quantum.
Canít run it on those mean machines
Until weíve actually got Ďem.
Youíre not alone, so go on home,
Tell Jeffrey and tell Sam:
Come up with something classical
Or else itís just a scam.
Unless Ö you think itís on the brink
A quantum-cal device.
That solves a game and brings you fame.
Damn! That would be nice!
