Everything is clean 
and bright—

and wireless,
and paperless, and 
state of the art—

here in the new-built 
and practically 

Worldwide Arena 
of Free Information—where,

for the first time 
in history, all spectacles 
are equal, 

and everyone is always  
sitting in the best seat.

Though, of course, 
for some reason 
(which nobody remembers), 

only those court-side 
are privileged enough 
to know 

what really goes 
into the bratwurst 

which they bark for 
from our happy and eager 
herd of roving vendors.
