Poetics on the ubootstrapper legs

Latin discutere, meaning
to shatter, to scatter forth, yet
nothing here

but convictions
to disseminate as if that
were the point itself and not some

nothing here
to change anyone or a mind
fully vested in its ego

we have heard all this before and
all that remains is metaphor
caged lions

without teeth
fighting ungracefully over
parcels of their imagined veldt
yet still caged

when the keys
remain in hands of keepers
who build the zoo larger
around you
