The Sporivores




oneWhat is the argument
for taking it seriously?
twoWe derive, we contrive,
we're alive.
threeEffort divulges distress,
more or less.
fourI, so much to see; you,
so little to do.
fiveAnd rarely and barely
even bother to.
sixTo admit influence
is to acknowledge a splinter.
sevenI want to make a thing,
not just a think.
eightBut it's harder to get noticed
than to do things.
nineThe indifferent arbiters
don't even say stop.
tenHumanity: the universe's only
nonsense factory.
elevenEvery word, however superfluous,
seems necessary.
twelveWould we agree to cease
if our memories were more robust?
thirteenWould a mastery of words
require their enslavement?
fourteenLet them eat
each other.
fifteenMore weapons are provided
than are needed
