Vicarious victims

“To err is human; to really foul things up requires a computer.”
    ~ Bill Vaughan, “Senator Soaper Says” syndicated columnn (April 2, 1969)

The two got to know one another before
Some rendered text on some remote displays;
They interfaced with building passion secure
That data should be understood always;
Till his wild tangents emerged for to clash
With her propositional calculus;
And each then applied analytics to dash
The hope that had first brought about the fuss;
As both thus regarded the battle as lost
Neither took further part in the war
To teach what the rest of learn at no cost:
That love is just that and nothing more.
