Permeating fumes imbueinto independent minds.Mouths indulge in thick soup;work proceeds to make do and mend.And while chickens are sliced,double chides exclaim in twos.Rearing viewfrom every parent who knows who is who's who.Each housed with expressions that breakand constructand restrict.And renew.Grain boiling down to molecules.They call it du riz.They toss in muumuus.And plucking guitars in fortitude.Red in bright under bluein a story to cue.They were brave in their boats.Thought they were enslaved still, too.Aucun repetition.Aucun and deslavedwithout vengeance due.Children eat the squash and become suited in independence.
