POEM: Information Inflation

What is overproduced & under-desired is cheapened.

We live in a world that does not want for information.

Perhaps, if we had to carve our words into stone —
or press them into clay tablets —
and had to carry said tablets around,
we’d be more careful what we said,
and people would be more eager to read it.

  1. I certainly would put more thought into what I wrote, if I had to carve or press words instead of simply typing them. The weight of the words would be more meaningful.
