To Mr Poe And Everybody Into El Dorado:

The real treasure of El Dorado was not gold, nor silver, nor platinum, nor gems. It was:
the potato, the tomato, the maize, the yam, the turkey and all the other wonderful foodstuffs without which the world cannot survive. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
Let every thing that has breath praise the Lord! Alleluya!

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
