Listen; once you finally get tired
of looking-

up the word misery 
in the rhyming dictionary,

I have a better idea
to help ease the tension

between longing to seem
vaguely similar

while also appearing so
strikingly individual.

All you have to do from
now on, is always make

sure to carry your very
correctness with you—

as if it were a cherished
trinket on some

shimmering necklace.
Futility!—they'll whisper

whenever they see you
out at parties;

such a costly and un-
touchable point of view!
