Someone decided that most guitars should have five strings.
Prior to hydraulics, who would have visioned oil in a cylinder
raising the heft of a ship in the locks, except the rogue mind?

Beethoven wrote symphonies, hearing none of the applause.
Helen Keller came to know more than most will ever perceive.

We read our own astrological chart in the morning newspaper
without a thought to the assured movement of orbiting planets.
Someone decided that poetry should have a consistent meter.
Then someone else added that last line, signifying everything.
