Lettuce make a large important building
too house the books from A too Z
Let us invite the Public there to read
We will always give the preference to the family
although lots of citizens can enter from this community
lettuce remove the obvious discordant problems
the sleeper the homeless the drunk
we will even make them leave this city
wearing tar and feathered belts
the lame the poor must walk a great distance
no place to call there home
Let us make a large important building
too house the books from A too Z
but only for the family
and not ever for the individual
this has been a social dissertation
from a bundle of quiet nerves
where RObots RUle this city
only workers will have work
only narrow minded bigots use the spigots
oh what an APril FOol
