Magnetic Poetry Yecch

(Still feeling somewhat dark.)

The “genius” magnetic poetry kit contains over 240 magnetic words.

It takes about ten minutes to break the words apart, and ten more to apply them to a suitable metal surface.

Once done, one may find oneself strangely disappointed with the results.

“they will spurn a viscious pariah / but only you can eschew a faux priapism”–huh?! What?! Is that really the best you can do?
