Early Riser, Endeavoring Writer
With my energy well-drained, like potting soil
I sip machine brewed coffee from the demitasse cup
I plundered from the wood kitchen cupboard.
Black buzzards break the early morning silence
I hector them to hush their urgent squawks.
They elevate themselves in the copse by the river
As I arise from the white wicker rocking chair.
I circumnavigate the hall and see my reflection
As I approach the Shakespeare portrait on the wall.
His collar flares like the scales of an eyelash viper.
He plummeted his quill into a bottle of indigo ink
And masterfully articulated love and fate, that is to this day is gesticulated
By actors who clock in hours to perfect their performance
For the audiences who gallivant to the theaters
And fill the seats like apple seedlings
To watch the rugosa rose red curtain rise and fall.
Shakespeare would need to stage an excavation to reach my level.
Justin biennial is the small business

Justin bieber is the best feeling

Justin bieber has a great game
and for the others

Justin bieber gave me up
to a cedar point and I didn't see
Justin bieber can't believe
that you're having the same problem
as the other one in your future
Justin bieber is not really the best
