a prank

i heard of the city warden who arranged
all the files in the station computer
based on dante’s nine circles of hell.
it was back in the day when computers
were rare and overlooked harbingers
of what was yet to come. imagine his
successor’s bewilderment at the sight
of the latin names left by the prankster.

but was he really one or was he rather
a visionary?
