Learn to insult,

Learn to give shots,

Learn to not be stepped upon,

Learn to read a map, connect the dots…


Learn to be nasty,

Learn to be vulgar,

Learn to be sarcastic,

Yearn to be more elastic…


Learn to fight,

Learn to take flight,

Learn to, notes from home, write,

Learn to accept nothing is in New Jersey, right…

Reviewed by Aberjhani 3/16/2006
A bitingly satirical (I hope) commentary--reads almost like a eulogy for the concept of hospitality:-)
