* Minor Systems Hiccup: First Burp - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Once fashionable
social anthropological nuclear family...
was promoted
as a modern model of pedigree.

Archaic extended family
incorporating superfluous grandparents...
deemed disesteemed excessive not required
gross stupidity.

Now untended nuclear family
has been negatively nuked.
Solo parents providing economically fretting
half functional gender balance.

Solo coupleless dysfunctional unit
dripstone communal basic building block...
like a ravenous computer virus
retains less than half knowledge of mature age.
