Empty Words on the Eve of Trump’s Acquittal

Trump King

 

 

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 CatSocially-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. From Wired.
