Excerpts:

Danger, Gourds
The raft is farmed with a haulage of ooze.
 
               It will thew out, like life boats from Oolong;
 
               It will cuckoo to a culprit, like the ermine of lists
 
Pate. Why do stuff then now not time lax gas?
 
Orthopedics half plot, half lobe, half float;
 
               And hash is the kick with mope; and parch, mount with hope;
 
               And harvest code and cost beg camp: the fat
 
Is print spruce, Radar Mary, bring flow?
