Manifesto

by Jim Benz

"Grammatical tautology" is the subject of this sentence.
Simultaneously, it is also the subject of the previous sentence.
The predicate of the prior sentence is also the subject of the previous sentence.
Therefore, the subject of the previous sentence is the predicate of the prior sentence.
Conversely, the subject of this sentence is the predicate of the first sentence
though the predicate of the second sentence is the subject of the previous sentence.
Likewise, the predicate of the prior sentence is the subject of the third sentence
while the predicate of the fourth sentence is still the predicate of the prior sentence.
The subject of the fifth sentence is always the subject of this sentence.
Therefore, the predicate of this sentence is the object of the proposition.

You utterly destroy the effectiveness of my coffee Jim...and if it wasn't in such an amazing way, I just might be bitter about that -as it is, I think I need to go back to my double cafe mochas with six shots of espresso...otherwise, I'll never be able to read your poetry without going into a catatonic state (and yes, that is totally a compliment!)

Well I know I've been rendered damn near speechless, personally. Your work always seems to be quite brilliant at bringing that out in me.

Jim, you've just found out what life is really all about and if you haven't it should be anyway.

I'm feeling George Carlin here. Loved it.

i think the front drivers-side tire of my brain just had a blow out.
