literary theory

we lose all meaning and now plain old time
becomes another far more alien thing
it's changed into a temporal paradigm
words lacking meaning but with a loud ring
we might have thought verbosity sublime
we're told to value literary bling
plain talk's a dominant oppresive crime
let all our thoughts be thinner than old string
we'll call our words an analytic climb
theory meant vision when the world was young
but now it means to throw out many words
let nonsense be pronounced by eager tongue
and claim as jewels old and smelly turds
leave out good sense serious critique and tact
and never ever pause to check a fact
