Example Poem

Pen poems carefully;  believable,  justifiable 
words denounce malignant authority
Quill lightly happily, reliably
help convince dangerous majority.

Write subdued parodies captivating automatically
those minions unconvinced America
is being minimized absolutely systematically
Such writings minimize hysteria.
