Falderal by Mike Ferguson

we are divided

we are denied

we are dying


we have

exceeded the maximum

global requests per minute

for crawlers or humans


and cannot access


cannot access

a roof

cannot access


cannot access



even if we could crawl

to any

of it


we are humans

but have exceeded



have exceeded

its care


have exceeded

its capacity


we are everywhere

but nowhere –

we are in the

butcher’s slaughterhouse


though some

speaking better than we

call it falderal


our crawl is



and we have exceeded it
