Quoth The Pentametron

Perhaps I’ve found a repetitive glitch

Within @pentametron‘s algorithms

‘Tis a fascile wisdom that doth bewitch

While producing trendy aphorisms

 

What phrase, pray tell, hath lodged inside my brain

Sagely advice for whom you might eschew

No more Shakespearean, I’ll speak it plain

Invest in people who invest in you

 

For those unfamiliar with this Twitter phenomenon, Pentametron uses algorithms to scour all of Twitter and retweets posts using iambic pentameter. It’s often amusing in what it uses for couplets – a rant, helpful advice, or even just a word repeated. Lately, though, it seems like the phrase “Invest in people who invest in you” has popped up repeatedly. I don’t recall it being attributed to the same poster each time, so that leads me to believe that many are buying into the phrase. It’s possible, out of all of Pentametron’s retweets, that I’m simply focusing that phrase more because it’s resonating with me. Why? It’s made me realize that I continue to choose to expend my time & energy on those who wouldn’t do the same for me. So I’m not doing that anymore. That doesn’t mean that I will be rude to people. I’m just no longer going to over-extend myself anymore.

Have something to add?
