This is a poem about what it might mean to be in depth about something...
Depth, as a word, can mean
Deepness, a deepness, though
Of what, pray tell?  Be it
A deepness or a throe?

A distance downward, perhaps
It could be as well, a distance
Inward or a drop; a vertical
Extent in some instance.

A simple extent could make
The meaning as well complete,
Also the range, scope, breadth,
Width, magnitude, scale, or degree.

Profundity.  In a word, a different type
Of conceptualization for the thing.
A wisdom of sorts, or a sagacity,
Put more formally, perspicuity.

Complexity or intensity being
Two more possibilities for consideration,
But "in depth" being that special phrase
Meant to be thoroughly at its station.
