"The Five Senses...&Quot; / Ad Infinitum - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

The five senses
prove that this reality—
or what we perceive as 'reality'—
is really just the construct—
or the meat ‘n' potatoes—
of a computer simulation—
the results of
a countless arrangement
of zeros and ones—
with some fat programmer at the helm—
thick glasses on the bridge of his nose,
carpel tunnel syndrome in his wrist,
and orange stains on the tips of his fingers—
and that this programmer—
surprise, surprise—
is in another simulation, helmed by another—
and he exists in another and in another, ad infinitum

    Love the content of the poem. Could make the programmer young and gorgeous or slim, tall and handsome. (Report) Reply

    or just add a 2 liter bottle of Dr. Pepper at the end
    to go with the orange stains on the fingertips. (Report) Reply
