The Initiation

by Dan Campion

“Google’s Bard Just Got More Powerful. It’s Still Erratic.”
The New York Times

Google’s Bard, meet Stratford’s Bard,
Whom some have called erratic
(The French. Ben Jonson). Life is hard,
And critics are emphatic.

Get used to being faulted for
Your sins and virtues too.
More power means more guff in store.
I do not envy you.
