Chickweed’s chartreuse little disks inclosing towpaths latterly.
Plus, librarian trustees’ names, as well as footnotes, readily,
Even as small monkeys hug big hippos, tigers, reticulated snakes,
Learn death by cassowary, eat unripe fruit, fail from bad mistakes.
When acting justly, profits croon quite high for lesser recompense.
Concierges collect coupon mounds, but gather little common sense.
Doctoral students pose to sting captured rodents, for mere cents.
Dull effigies, left from lab time, such critters denote ephemera,
As taken from jolly birds’ poop on deans, also on other poo-bahs.
Propitiation functions as to void certain fossa demographics,
What's more, cancels chimpanzees, wallabies, penguins guiding traffic,
Resemble worse case goings on, remind us texts might ring epigraphic.
Persuasion’s inoculation fails applied to most drugged adolescents;
Inscribed circles, Chaucer’s work, proceed irrelevant to malcontents.
Accordingly, vellum gets locked up ‘fore it turns into dull pulque,
Reflect; rebellious youths storm once they’ve read from Nikkei.
Demanding oleaster insights, small trulos, and oddly stirred play.
Reduced mentions of child abuse, likewise, go astray, catches under
Projects concerned with wars, lords, beasts, fiefdoms, maybe numbers.
Intrepid teachers, nonetheless, sally forth, rouse referentially,
Swim in untenured tides, hum, work pigeonholes stalwartly,
On balance, school bureaucrats, old buffalos, esteem industry,
Not stylistic ideations, truth, or solenodons dancing fairy rings;
Officials seek white powder, trysts, somewhat “happy things.”
