101 by Mark Young


In any use of promised
closure in order to reap votes

minimize the status
of the myriad rows of
figures. (C. P. Cavafy)

Why give notice of a crisis? That
doesn’t suit anyone’s interests.

Investigations waste time,
more so when it is not clear
what the outcomes may be.

Use terms like “everything
is still unclear.” & try not to
misspell that finishing word —

“nuclear” can end up nightmare.
