All the original everything has
Rolled out the factory.
The Whatsits and Whosees along with
Their two point oh children
Now retired to a retail museum.
Wait awhile: won’t be long ’til
The oily new marketing rep
Sells the idea: it’s time to reinvent you.
Latin is dead. Long live the King
Of Romance, the rhetorical foundation for
Grammatical correctness, and his fuck buddy
Political correctness as well.
All the Original Everything, now showing at the drive-in.
Dinner and a Realization:
It’s all the same chicken. It’s all the same
Spices. It’s all the same dulcet DNA.
