Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy,
approximately 800 redundant pages
of Kafkaesque scoffing
at relentless banalities of economic and political elitists.
Rather like reading the often inebriated conversations
behind the all-night celebration scenes
of a Republican National Party Convention,
Or, sadly, a Democratic National Party Convention
only maybe about 400 pages
with the remainder quite liberally
and anti-climatically inscrutable.
