Tick Box

Form now just function,
neither good nor bad
not on top. Fill the time
without making anything.
Vital. Fill in the lines,
full of personal details
but no personality left.
Too many rules that
we didn’t make up,
pushed into sections
and forced to fit the pattern.
A modern meaning of
form. Force the function.

This came from thinking about how modern life has added new meanings to words.
