Sequel on Q

On Oct 10 New York Times columnist published an article "Generation Q: The quiet ones."

Friedman says,
I've been calling them "Generation Q" — the Quiet Americans, in the best sense of that term, quietly pursuing their idealism, at home and abroad. But Generation Q may be too quiet, too online, for its own good, and for the country's own good.

Had he taken my cue from my poem ?

published on New Verse News. Twisted it for his purposes?

I promptly crafted this sequel in response.

Substitutes? Say,
American Enterprise! Got mine!
But not yet fo’ you, Q!
You unknown Quantities
Who refuse to play by the old rules
By the numbers

Numbers that don’t add up
Below the top’s bottom line
The Q are you & you & you
The Q who cannot face the Z
“Who will come to be
The doomsday eye witnesses
But WE”

Quotidians who do not count,
Their blessings.
