Cherish your memorized weakness
Fashioned from a manifesto 
Lady, I am no futurist
I'm my only critic, I
Trolls in the glen are consorting again
The liberals say they don't exist 
But I know that they do
Reinforce your literal ass 
Hit it on the first or second pass
Frozen images, respected few
Type slowly
