Does anyone read poetry, anymore? Does anyone ever talk to anyone else, anymore — face to face, outside of the medium of electronic devices? Does anyone actually give his or her full time and attention, anymore? Does anyone believe in anything, anymore?
As the pews of churches become emptied ever more each day; as people interact through Smartphones and other electronic devices exclusively; as the world of reality is ever more replaced by the virtual universe of language games no longer based upon the disjunctive between truth and falsity — one wonders whether the abandonment of poetry is a sign that human emotion and empathy is no longer evident in the soul of a civilization.
Reading poetry takes time; time that we no longer have. Reading poetry takes patience; patience which can no longer be afforded. Reading poetry requires the lull of cadence where voices and laughter commingle into a shared mirth of joyful sounds; and of which we have lost.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition prevents the Federal or Postal worker from performing all of the essential elements of one’s Federal or Postal job, the question becomes: Does anyone, anymore? Does anyone care, anymore? Does anyone actually want to help, anymore?
Consult with a FERS Attorney who specializes in FERS Disability Retirement Law and consider filing for Federal Disability Retirement benefits, lest the quest is answered in the negative and termination of employment becomes just another unanswered questionreverberating with the finality of, Does Anyone, Anymore?
