An Appropriate Title

We live in a world obsessed with quantity.
The value of our work is judged not on its content, but on whether it consists, for example, of at least seven hundred words.

To that end I have created the modern haiku, as follows:

Spring in severance
yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada
yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada
yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada
