What's The Point
I've been wordsmithing for a long time.
by Marshall Hahn
Sometimes serious and sometimes sublime
Yet always I strove for a meaning
In what we now call communicating
But the process has become so devastating.
Fed by an explosion of mass media relating
That "words " have lost all their meaning
In the cacophony of electronic beaming!
Macluann said: "The medium is the message"
To understand this takes a dedicated sage!
Question is, does the message have a meaning
Or are there just "words" you are gleaning?
Before this sonnet you anoint
Pray tell me: What's the point
