My name is Joseph Winston McCarthy.
Born July 2nd, 1986.  American.
I’m here in Berlin on a business trip. 
Is there anything else you’d like to know? 
… 
Age or
shoe size too,
Cholesterol, 
Gross domestic product, 
Personal merit.
All the ways of measure,
The minute hand,
The dollar bill,
The king’s thumb
The .75 L bottle, calendar year,
Quarterly earning,
Distance to home, credit score
Hispanic or non-hispanic,
Occupation,
Monday,
Mama and Papa, 
Territory too, battery life, inseam, 
Length of stay, lethal dose,
September,
Weight, 
The ceaseless wanting, and acceptance of limit,
Growth, achievement,
Time of birth, and always
Fatigue.
Once again, it’s bedtime for baby… 
This is simply “the way things are.”
