I thought I’d coin a word today.
But instead of simple thought post,

Is not a truism for our time
Unless imparting confusion
By the excess information
Is the goal to which we aspire.

Your priorities now in mire.
See these results if see you could
Whether by light of moon or sun.

Say it proudly, say it with boast;
But don’t say it in unison:

Soon comprehension will disperse
By the length of my little verse
And now perhaps I’ve caused again
