My Magical Meme Machine

by CD Richards

The author has placed a warning on this post for language.
I'd written such a lovely tale
but to be sure it didn't fail
('twas worth at least a "sixer" vote)
I thought I'd better add a quote.

I asked a good friend for a source --
only the best would do, of course.
"I think that you should use a meme
to bolster and enhance your theme."

So off I went to trawl the 'net
and there I found the best one yet:
"Cows are delicious, eat and see"
and it was signed "Mahatma G."

I really thought the job was done
until I came across this one:
"Slavery is rather swell"
"Yours faithfully, Abraham L."

The strangest one I came across
left me at something of a loss:
"Seek ye all those things divine"
it bore the name "A. Einstein".

At this point I began to see
(the revelation still shocks me)
not everything we see is true --
once unleashed, lies stick like glue.

It seems to matter not to some
(though being caught can make them glum)
whether their "source" is false or true
as long as it convinces you.

Take a photo, add some text
make any shit you like up next.
Forget research, don't slog or sweat --
welcome to the internet!
