hi-octane? siesta?

oh, cease titans!
associate thine
atheistic aeons
nacho satieties.


his taco is eaten!

incite hate so as
to chains, tease i.

see: I toast china

Bravo. Well done.

I propose Hi-Octane Siesta be Ta-Nehisi Coates's new iSteve nickname. Bloomborg, Hi-Octane Siesta -- someday, Steve can write a Waugh-inspired novel and use these as character names.

Poetry is a literary construct by the looks of it.

Chances are good that the author has IQ double that of Ta-Nehesi Coates.

"nacho satieties"

Oh man ...

Truly commendable.

Well that is just pure inspiration, so here's more on the theme, we just need to start a contest:

the overseer with the
Whip is around
the corner so run anywhere but
not Tennessee!

in Africa there's
Peace and Justice
Well just about everywhere so it's
not Tennessee!

but somehow you're
still in America well
everybody's got to live somewhere
at least for you that's
not Tennessee!

Oops, I forgot my title:
"Epater les blancs"

His milkshake is drunk and his taco is eaten.

I just wanted to mention that Ta-Nehisi Coates banned me from commenting in The Atlantic because he's a punk little punk bitch who doesn't want to be challenged.

"Hi-octane siesta" sounds like a great descriptor for a nation like Mexico - or eventually the United States - that exhibits the qualities of dilligent lassitude and oustanding mediocrity.

Not really a compliment, that may still put him in double digits!

In any event, very clever,ingenious and droll from just a nobody

Anagram is increasingly a lost art!
a haiku anagram is a twofer!
