faust's poem 2 Anonymous: "The Spirit Immortal"

the spirit immortal
(or, in starry eyed admiration dedicated to Anonymous)

All the best of us, hackers, wings far from untested,
attain our prize but per accindens –although few of us guessed it –
the rest are intending, (to practice) or
dependent, per...
- haps,

 ...on the defaults reconfigured --
(our own, or our app's).*

:philosophies hammerless : dreams lacking anvils :
(- in theory- ) 
:for the souls of immortals:    
                                                                                                                                                               we see their errors turn fatal, prove vapor, 
where shown but void due to muteness, that threatened to 0wn

& still they have stayed – with us – 
                                      were staid – to us – 
                                                                  would state "us," & quo
Ut alteri vadis, warranto; alteri quorum, quid pro.

This is causa enough (should reason persever) 
to recognize, laugh at, and ---

(but be sure to remember
to anticipate everything 
while expecting it never)

---exlploit cheerfully, thoroughly, such evil endeavor.

Success (of course) is your proof,
by your choice,
at whatever:

to know, and to will, and to dare demand never
be told of the odds
that one changes
if clever.
