In corporate lingo, with "swim lanes," "deep dives,"

"Intentional" "stakeholders" "monetized."

Marketers monitored all the "crowd cultures,"

As "buy-ins" and "bandwidth" were lurking like vultures.

Acclaim and aspersions cascaded like sleet.

Including "some very fine people" (both sides).

His foes, they were "stupid," "disasters," "sore losers,"

Reporters, "believe me," were always "fake newsers."
