If It Proves Anything


A statistical arbiter
accords two discrete IP entities
with 100 hits on 45 poems

One I know left a comment,
thank you HG, but the
anonymous one needs to
be thanked too

Such dedication to have
read so many – even if
popular reads, or so
said statistics say

generators explain why we
as poets fail and fungus freely
grows - if it proves anything

IP: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a numerical label that is assigned to devices participating in a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol for communication between its nodes.[1] An IP address serves two principal functions in networking: host identification and location addressing. The role of the IP address has also been characterized as follows: 'A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there.'[2]
