Only a few couplets in, and this is already amazing.

Is it, um, an homage? Or does the writer not know about A.R. Ammons?

"And if that clone don't
fool the eye

Momma's gonna buy you
sxxxxx some crimson dye"

Heh. I like the modern versions of these substitution things.

I saw this on Projects when it was posted and it actually inspired me to write a script for a short film on the same principle and turn it into a mobius strip. I'll probably be putting it on Kickstarter at some point.
