Mathematicians have
chiseled reality
down to fit
square holes
but reality’s round
peg origins are
always apparent.

Bloody sweat dripped
by hammering buffoons
lubricates but
never illuminates.

When slide-rulers
become swords
governments
can justify collateral damage
miscalculations
by a few hundred thousand.
