    I'll have a go at translating it, hope that Herman doesn't mind...

    This Abraham* seems like a wise man
    but it's the computer
    that can find it all
    Besides a "very busy job"
    he also has time to
    go into the air

    our warm congratulations
    hopefully this crash
    didn't injure you too much

    In Dutch the poem rhymes, but I won't bother trying to make the English translation rhyme, it'd probably take me forever.

    *In Holland, a man turning 50 is said to have seen Abraham / be an Abraham... does this exist in other countries, too?
