Books Redenbacher
Ford let the future 
Edison Ethiutopias
Decide if yuppies
Or trans ppl faced
More exploitation 
Under late capital
Why is it that we
Are always more
Attracted to hells
And jumping off
Berryman style
Bridges than
Being board mono
Calvinist theists 
Jumping ropes
Why does no 
One truly want
More of utopia
Hellenic flames
The few, the dowry,
& Humbert priests
