The Fleas* Are Fleeing In Dread! - Poem by Margaret Alice

I live life according to the principles
of Chaos Science, looking for patterns
in seemingly random, unpredictable
events - looking at the results of our
dependence on initial conditions;
examining all those conditions assiduously;
thus I’m perfectly prepared to weather
the storms, ups and downs; of the
Translation Day Committee Meetings,
keeping minutes and commenting;
enjoying the company of all our
colleagues assigned to the same task –
though the rest of the FLEAS*
are fleeing in dread!
