Example Poem
 
Ain’t That a Bitch?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
She’s a cute and tiny
pup I think I’ll like,
Don’t she have a hiney?
Where’d ya find her, Mike?
You fabricated her?
She’s just an artifact?
and that’s not really fur?
That’s me in the abstract?
I’m gonna be depressed
I’m ready for a mate.
But facts must be confessed.
I’ll be content to wait…
     before the dating starts,
     find one with all the parts.
