Poems of the Week

Silicon Artists

“Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk say they’re up for a cage match. Who would win?
Zuckerberg has been competing in Brazilian jiu-jitsu; Musk has size on his side—
and a move called ‘the Walrus'”
The Guardian

Next to Elon, Mark’s a husk;
Musk, by contrast, is a truck.
Zuck, however, trains till dusk
At jiu-jitsu: he can duck.
Elon does the Walrus; hark:
That’s the move he’s put his seal on.
Mark, though lighter than a lark,
Ripples muscles you could kneel on.
Who would win? It’s hard to choose;
Let’s keep hoping both might lose.
