The smallest wear-and-tear on a digital image
Why hasn't anyone thought of this before
Perhaps you've thought digital images are immune
But they can be trampled in the dust
Stained or torn, ripped or soaked in floods
Burned or charred, polished or foxed by age
Hooray for the digital that has tricked us forever
Here is proof of so much wear-and-tear
Destroy she said, but where to begin
There is there there, i replied in both tears and laughter
So the matrix is only a woven misconception
The grid is only a silly Vladimir Lenin

Look, i said i've done it, nothing more there is
Nothing much there, she said, nothing much there at all
