Ode to a Barcode


Ode to a Barcode
Oh, barcode of black and white lines

Of varying thicknesses

Side by side

Like

But unlike to

Piano keys.

I scan your configuration

And ‘beep!’ at your contained information.

Or

‘Woof!’
Oh, barcode,

Like a zebra thou art

Or a tiger

In some way

But; not really.

And thy secret thou shall keep

Until with my scanner

It shall go ‘beep!’

Or ‘woof!’

Thou why it should go ‘woof!’

Only I shall know.
