Feeding the sacred cows...

Palladiums

IN the newspaper office—who are the spooks?
Who wears the mythic coat invisible?

Who pussyfoots from desk to desk
with a speaking forefinger?
Who gumshoes amid the copy paper
with a whispering thumb?

Speak softly—the sacred cows may hear.
Speak easy—the sacred cows must be fed.


~Carl Sandburg (1878–1967). Cornhuskers 1918.
