Today's poem is by Carl Rosenstock
The Mystery of Systems
Once upon a time, on my way to work,
Or more properly, my way to the subway,
I froze. Nothing dramatic
The magnet in my heart
Found iron under the street And I was seized to the spot.
Once upon the way to my heart,
I found time seized
Under the street. Nothing
A properly dramatic magnet
Froze my way to work.
Once nothing dramatic froze time the iron
Under the subway to the magnet
In my heart, I was seized
On my way to the street.
Once seized, my magnet heart
Under the street, I found nothing.
In time, the subway froze,
The magnet in my heart froze,
I found nothing dramatic.
Once I was nothing dramatic, I froze.
