Because the formatting on the Fallout Shelter’s website isn’t to my taste (read: terrible) and because my poetry is (blessedly for you, I’m sure) short, I thought I’d reprint here the poem that my school’s lit journal ran in the as of last night released 2015 issue.
A Man Alone is No Man at All A man alone is no man at all, Neither rich nor poor, Sad nor sane, Bounded only By whatever sense his world makes. A society of one, Is by definition An autocracy. Events tell tales, Interaction accords recordings. Engagement becomes necessary If everything isn’t to be made up. Solipsistic self-saturation occasionally serves as solace If everything isn’t to be made up, Engagement becomes necessary. Interaction accords recording. Events tell tales. An autocracy, Is by definition, A society of one By whatever sense his world makes Bounded. Sad or sane, Rich or poor, A man alone is no man at all.
