Eat or Delete

look up the word cookie
It did used to mean
sweet crunch and chew munch
as in meals in between

but cookies now also mean
undisclosed tracky bits
sly snips of code that
will peek at your tats

index all your foibles
detect and reveal
then sell to all sellers
the size of your deal

a word that could serve
the real meaning preserve
would mean caught you red handed
here’s a word you deserve

unco-op the cookie
disclose the intention
what lives in that jar
does need our digestion
