Will be my choicest palette
And chaos will the colours be
Indecision, sculptors mallet.

In no set rhyme or structure
Instead, use language most absurd
Expectations all shall rupture!
These lines of mine are quite unright
And drip with irony
For in ignoring all these things
These things have come to me
