Poem: Citations Speak Louder Than Words

By: JD DeHart

just words

We learn from the eminent professor
That we have nothing to say in research
That someone else has not already said
Nothing to mention that is disconnected
From multiple spider web points of study

We take our ideas and tie them to others
Supporting them on the vertebrae
Of other researchers and bibliographies
Giving them weight, spirit, and intestines
All in MLA format, or else APA
Birthing them to full statistical existence.
