The Editor                                                         

            Is a numeral
            With all the ethics of
            An exclamation point
            This, that, this, that,
            No, no, no, no, no, this,
            Maybe later, no, no, no, no –
            Ah, that fits!
            This holy integer
            Selects a piece
            That says as close to nothing
            Cleverly enough to look like
            Much much more
            And satisfies, thereby,
            That moral force behind the throne –
