Despite our patter
of protestations 
that we're 

all obsessed 
with novelty, 
it's pattern 

that we really seek 
and feel the most 
at home in. 

Rhythm still 
gets our motor going,
while rhyme 

feels like a cup of sugar 
our best words kindly 
lend to others. 

Is it right 
that we derive 
so much succor 

from design? 
If there were 
a difference

between right
and common,
would it matter?
