The inevitable decline...

TonyR: tomorrow i get to present my poesy to a room full of forty young people
Joe M: That sounds very exciting. Are you prepared?
TonyR: bob needs no special preparation. life is preparation enough.
Joe M: You are so wise lately.
TonyR: bob's wisdom comes from the hard facts of human existence, from bleak reality
TonyR: bob continues to fight the bourgeoisie while slowly but surely getting absorbed into its ranks
Joe M: That's how it goes.
TonyR: soon bob will be just another cog
Joe M: I am a renegade but not even I could escape the SOQ with my appearence in American Poet.
TonyR: yes. you were tempted
TonyR: by the fruits of the REAL american tree
Joe M: Yes, indeed. Man I just ate a burrito and I feel energized.
