While you're reading this
Somebody's deciding whether
it's filling empty minds with
stuff of the classifiable category
that oughtn't be open to just
anybody reading this. Trilemma:
Open, Closed, Classified.
Classified's a transient value
of sometimes no value @ all.
[Ex. Air is getting sorta scarce.]
Classified /not-quite classified?
Classified; lest panic ensue.
You can all breathe now. Closed.
