21st Century Poem


Wordbab strictly verbot

cause gunners need silence

to heatstrap dissed targets.

Ethnopop groups scan

day blat resource vats,

sunning midgather fruits

deradiated before sharing.

Streettraf moves linear,

wasting natural reserves

of the remaining atmo.

Oxytherapists decline trankheads,

resisting pubserve demands

to detox mindbend.
