Mechanical Moments – a poem

Terminology, histrionics and bland talk

Of those long held beliefs made stand

Up as paper dressed mannequins tottering,

Kept vertical by agreed upon standards,

Cardboard cut-out.

*

Mechanical moments, jargon, bureaucracy,

The casual nature of commerce formed

From simple consolidations, so high

That they know few more lives, extenuating

Circumstances.
