Awfully awkward to be called a gawky geek,
Indiscrete, dontcha think? Blessed are the meek,
For they will inherit the national debt, all wet,
losers, unlike Richard Dawkins, though I bet
The medial squawking awk in his surname
Comes from the Old Norse öfug. It’s a shame
To have part of your name mean wrong way,
And that’s about all I got to say.
Note: Richard Dawkins coined the word “meme” in his 1976 bestseller The Selfish Gene. The word — which is ascribed to an idea, behaviour or style that spreads from person to person within a culture — has since been reappropriated by the internet, with Grumpy Cat, Socially-Awkward Penguin and Overly-Attached Girlfriend spreading virally, leaping from IP address to IP address (and brain to brain) via a process which, in the broad sense, can be called imitation.

One thought on “Empty Words on the Eve of Trump’s Acquittal”
I saved the Steve Jobs Wired magazine that came out after he passed. I think I may have lost it, but I intended to hang onto it.
