Meta Mimetic

An instability of meaning
May make conversation absurd
Where definition quarantining
Makes an invigorating word.
Mean what you say and say what you mean
And keep obfuscation at arm's length,
For honor will not respect a scene
Where prevarication is full strength...
Unless the lie therein is white,
And only a little one as well,
Because a lie of course is never right
In heaven or semantic hell...
Where translations are always quickly lost
At comprehension's operating cost.
