Your posts are great man. I am always entertained.
Lots of big corporations have "mission statements" and things these
days, I think it's pretty "cool" to have one. But generally what's
happened to create them is that some big bosses have gotten together in
a smoke-filled room , chatted about nonsense and then created some
terms that they think sound really great.
The problem is though that these get sent out to the staff in a mail,
and they don't mean anything. It'll be something dynamic sounding like
"Always think pro-active". It's meant to inspire everyone but all it
does is make people think "huh?".
That's kind of what you have here with the poetry stuff. Probably
sounds great and is a nice buzzline, but means absolutely nothing except
maybe to he who said it. Even then it'd lose something in the
translation. And it's not even from a large company.
 Probably not smoke filled these days as it'd be illegal.
