Oh my! Modern technology! A Poem

It has enabled

individuals

to create

beautiful 

documents

filled with pretty pictures

fantastical

statistically-

backed visions. 

It has enabled

individuals

obsessed with

anecdotal

statistical

accountabil-

Ity

to a

particular

mandate,

even when

particular

mandate

is

Non-

-Sense.

It has enabled

society

to render

inaudible

croaking canaries’

complete loss of voice

declare said loss

un-

sub-

-stantiated

the croaks

not

represented

by any single

established

individual’s

anecdote-

ed 

statistical

accountability.

And there you have…

A wanna-be poem! 

(the reason is in the rhyme, 

the rhyme is in the rhythm, 

the rhythm is in the read…

read it out loud now

and 

luxuriate in the 

ludicrous 

loquacity of it all!)
