Again, please pardon the format..clipped from poetry section<>


After a hot shower
And a warm breakfast
Of Mexican Chorizo with
Costa Rican Grapefruit
And Columbian coffee
They left their
Ikea furnished
Heated dwellings
Dressed in a variety of
Asian Polyester blends
And Philippine-made
Synthetic sneakers

They loaded up their
Aging gas-burning
Foreign Vehicles with
picket signs made of
durable Japanese Luan
Bearing messages painted with
Bright Chinese acrylics
And attached to stakes
of chemically-treated
Virgin Canadian pine
with German-steel staples

Sipping plastic bottles
Filled with French H2O
They arrived at the scene
To protest against
U.S. Oil Interests,
The Bad U.S.,
The Very Naughty U.S.
And The Extremely Evil U.S.

(cue suspenseful music)

But in plain sight of
unsuspecting onlookers
they would discuss
their real mission
Speaking quietly with
minimum lip movement
using special pig-latin codes

(build musical suspense)
They organized and scheduled
Their next event …

...To make public…
The dark and devious conspiracy
behind the manufacture of…

(music reaches crescendo)

…Green Gumballs…

….Oh, the horror!...

(music fin)

But that's another story

Creative and words of truth. Great job!

I have nothing against green gumballs personally, but actually I would hate to think that my sister was involved with one.
