I cannot promise
Not to do such things for you
But this time, I will use the wrong number of syllables

I suppose one could've guided the post more. So much for happy circumstances in the F5-5-7-5 department.

It's a full dictionary, I understand. Oh well. C'est la vie.

I killed the party
With my lib'ral hippie crap
My bad, sorry folks.

Or everyone on the East Coast left work. Either way.

This is also my first realization that I pronounce "liberal" as a two-syllable word. Really makes you think.

But not really.
