Ahump or Trumphab

David Schneider, a Facebook friend, just made a very smart post in which he mentioned Ahab, a character of Melville’s imagination who is the perfect icon of the moment we are called upon to tend (BTW, I recommend the book).

my reaction:

David —

I like the white whale ref
I hadn’t thought of that
but it’s apt

Ahump or Trumphab
Melville has spelled it out
for common consumption,
and we eat

It’s gotten
that bad
.
