Expert Poem

if you are not an expert
you should not be reading
this poem

only an expert
is qualified enough
to know at a glance
if these words
have been manufactured
according to strictly regulated
standards

if a shelf date
has not been stamped
at the bottom,
proceed with caution
for it may be an indication
that this is an unauthorized
or bootlegged poem

if there is a shelf date
and it has expired
do not attempt to return poem
to its place of origin.
experts disagree on the
repercussions
