creepy crawlies

A poem is a cryptic array
And could be the terrorist play
The web is complex
But will never perplex
The mighty and proud NSA

Author's note: It is not just phone and email traffic that is monitored.  By logic and since any and all websites can be used as code, I have to surmise that the NSA is reading all web traffic as well.  Nothing is private from the prying eyes of the web crawlers.  The robots out there scanning us and checking on what we are doing may inflate the total of the views of our work.

    What a world we live in Duke. I must agree with the whole of the comments. Very clever. Thanks again for your reviews on my work. You have very interesting interpretations on my work and have a big understanding of what I am trying to poetry and display. It is a pleasure to read your work, and to receive your wonderful reviews. Thanks a million my friend. David too is very appreciative of the time and effort you gave to read his work. Always, Laura

    Sounds like a funny story. Or maybe not. People like exes and people in positions of authority do strange things at times. There is no shortage of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) in our land.

    I still think they have the skills of the keystone cops. haha. Like doctors with all their fancy equipment but can't even figure out a simple diagnosis on their own. Good one. and about your beer suggestions. Sadly nobody in my family drinks beer. So I guess that is one remedy I can't suggest to them. haha.

    I am afraid it is all getting out of control. The only true safety we can have is a world based on fairness and opportunity for everyone. The wealth gap in the world between rich and poor is the ultimate cause for unrest and must be addressed. The rest is window dressing.

    Came by to thank you for your comments a while back and to catch up on some of your poetry! I have been absent from the Soup for a couple of months due to college life and summer vacation keeping me very busy! Was such a pleasure to stop by and say hello, you are one of the people on the Soup that always brings me many smiles. :)
