Rejection Letters

Go Back to School, Greta

Fame
Shame
Schwarzenegger
can get you a Tesla 3
But Twitter won’t turbocharge
your trumped-up monopoly
Don’t blame the kings, Greta
hot lava bombs and heresy
Go make some friends, Greta
Quit tallying-dallying entropy

Go –
            fly
            buy
            waste
            Try

Numb your skull with Stranger Things
3%
Grey’s Anatomy
Cram the spells of Riverdale
Armani
Blahnik
Christian D

Go back to school, Greta
pirralha
pyari
Tün-berry
Go back to school, beta:
Renew your ABCs
