Redundancy is very key to IPV,
Especially for IPV v 4.

The high speed network that was built
To transfer data from Boston to New York
Was damaged from searing heat that wilts
And has been taken down for repair work.

Beneath a railway down which trains sped.
The system will be down for 48 hours
So Internet2 is bereft of its powers.
