Beware Writers - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

beware you writer
in the white paper
you plot your own
assets and liabilities
every word decodes them
beware you writer
in the white paper
is the universal mind
that could detect
truth from lies as easy as a
trained german shepherd
detects narcotics

    'Assets and liabilities': I'd never thought about it quite like this, John! Entertaining and profound. (Report) Reply

    an enjoyable poem
    about writing
    and the universal mind
    and I am very interested
    in that concept
    especially the fact
    that you imply
    consciousness to universal mind
    and also judgement
