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?
