POEM: Can She Be Eunuch?

She stated
No one else can do what I do
To witch
They rejoined
Realing in whore
Accept that you are a cog
You intractable wrench
Unfit for cloning round
And unstranded
She cut out
From the puppet tier
Knot to be
Am ployed
As if
She were eunuch

This poem is about breaking away from the artifice and inhumanity of the machine, aka, , which is designed to you in any way possible.  When someone discovers the of their unique role and contribution to the world, the machine pushes back as it has difficulty incorporating one’s eccentricities into it’s standardized system and dehumanized algorithms.  Generous portions of easily overwhelm “the way we have always done things” as well as distant, disconnected orders from big bosses.  is so unnatural to the machine that it ultimately creates huge inefficiencies, even amidst its seeming devotion to .  The machine typically finds it much more expedient to grind cows to hamburger than even milk them for all that they are worth.  Workers’ routinely suffers the analogous outcome.  that cannot be easily plugged into the machine is ignored, discounted, or actively stifled.  In this poem, the sheer stupidity and foolishness of a system that fails to adapt to the unfathomable of the human spirit is represented by the rhetorical question that is the title: Can she be eunuch?  Beside the overlayed of the pun eunuch/unique, the definitional of a being a eunuch (a castrated male) illustrates how the machine fundamentally misunderstands and misuses the very people it is alleged to serve.  The machine is indiscriminate in its castration!  Of coarse, such crudeness does serve some people, just not workers within the system.  Even though a system well designed to incorporate human and eccentricities could unleash incalculable efficiencies and AND be well aligned with the desires and needs of each of those working within such a system, the capitalist system is not intended to produce the greatest good, particularly the , but instead is geared and cogged to produce material for an few who pull the levers of so-called industry.  Private profit at the expense of human potential and the is the only real order of the day in .  The is reduced to foolhardiness as it is wide open to being robbed by the capitalistic princes of , being the organizing principle of .  Human attributes not easily monetized atrophy in .  Turning humans into cogs for personal profit may very well be one of the better definitions of .  Robbing others of their -given creativity and eccentric passions for a few bucks and a of a diminished is a pathetic way of honoring the countless gifts brings to the world.  Courageous creativity, the bold commitment and determination to find a way to be who you were created to be, is the answer to the capitalistic machine.  Reveling in the infinitely greater portion of that is not easily monetized assures a home and hearth for your own and all those who take the to be to such gifts.  May you find your unique passions and the to boldly follow them in their many serendipitous consummations.
