The popular complaint (a poem)

Had trouble picking my writing challenge for March. It was between the Schuttelreim and the Pi-Archimedes. The Schuttelreim got very annoying very quickly, so I’m going with the Pi-Archimedes: six lines, with the number of words in each line corresponding to the first six digits of Pi—i.e., 3-1-4-1-5-9.

It’s not the
that is killing us
What’s doing it is the
ongoing onslaught of news—good, bad, fake, and otherwise
