The Golden Ratio: The Rule of Thirds… (Multi-Photo)

2 comments

(This is just satire on the Rule of Thirds — the simplified form of the Golden Ratio —  which is all the rage in photography realms; most everyone has used it, including myself; those of you who use it or who have written about it… please do not be offended.  Note:  Within the poem, switch “parts” with where “countries” occurs… and “country” with where “part” occurs.)

the rule of thirds

came by

it divi

ded

up

the

sky

it sectioned nature’s flowing traits

with man-made lines

in graphed points of space

the rule of thirds

jumped in

it drank a fifth of gin

it cut up the world

into little

bits

and it

sucked nine squarish

chocolate mints

the rule of thirds

marked its spot

in a

tic tac toe game so hot

everyone wanted 

to draw up their lines

and 

everyone figured why not

the rule of thirds

squared away

it decreed a superior way

it di

vided (countries)

of the whole for itself

for its superhuman

(part)men’s wealth

precisely properly 

today
