This poem

This poem

Is manufactured

In an uninspired moment.

This poem

Refuses to maintain interest;

Incapable,

Impotent.

This poem

Reflects the apathy of the youth.

This poem

Is a clone

Of the other poems

That speak of ‘this poem.’

This poem

Masquerades

Tolerance and boredom.

This poem

Confuses

Laziness with selfishness,

And this poem.

    If not invented then it must be stolen or at least borrowed. If invention reveals truth, art is its innovation. There is no best, only better. If I think in words, I am but a thief of an idea. There is nothing new under the sun, not you nor me. Manufacturing is the systematic transformation of material. Operations within the process add value. The art and science of making things, Monosukuri in Japanese) applies to creative activity too. Chris.

        I’m no academic, however I do have many interests. In my working life I have on the past been exposed to German and Japanese. The notion of Warusa Kagen on Japanese is fascinating. It is the state of not being wrong and yet there is something not quite right. The situation slowly deteriorates almost imperceptibly. But if it were to continue unnoticed there would be significant negative impact. This is illustrated by the story of the frog in a pan of water. If the temperature is allowed to rise, but by only a degree or so over as lengthy period, the frog is unlikely to notice the rise. In this way it is possible to eventually cook the frog. He will notice the change, eventually but it will be too late. Warusa Kagen. Look for small changes. Do not be like the boiled frog. Chris.
