Leaving aside this analogy of a far-from-fun-feline rift, I shall put it behind me and address an impending concatenation of events and perturbing ancillary annoyances which, taken in aggregate, could be dubbed PARADIGM SWIFT:
To wit: they
(the infamous proverbial powers that be)
insist on throwing upgrades and updates
down our waiting gullets
far faster than we can digest them,
even with grist for the proverbial mill.
And, if you will,
for those of us that are over the hill,
this accelerated, hyper-accelerated
akin to the also proverbial bitter pill,
can kill our thrill, thus rendering it nil.
