Y am dead Y am mad Y aren’t defending
your annexed maddening? yeah am damned You
am darning your acid mantle Y? Ask dad you,
ask mom. Your angry dad yo after my yodel
angered master yesterday asked Don’t you all
make your ascent down your adequate manshape
yearly? Asked Don’t your appropriations
make your assholes damn yankee? And mom
your argument didn’t yet add much. You
ascertained dat yolo ain’t made your afterlife
deregulate your alleycat martyrdom yoni; am
deadlock yearnings about mass yeeha autonomy
doing your abstract moaney?
