1C Coming Shortage of Unnatural Resources: Rhymes

May 21, 2007

Trying to subsist on a diet of modern poetry, whether high literature or mooney jooney popular jingles or bapping rapping hip hop is a likely road to starvation.

    The world will be terrible without rhymes, melodies, and motor oil! I guess I should start writing music and poetry…and riding my bike more often.

    A clever guy
    Such as I
    Can think of a rhyme

    I highly doubt
    That we’ll run out.
