Cl@ssific@tionism - Poem by bill costley

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.
