A Thesaurus of LA Burning

em = By Nicole Matthews

So you've just purchased your own pushcart?

How long did you think you could push down and put upon

the put-upon before becoming their quarry?

A burning rag in quart bottle is just quid pro quo

for quiescence before the racists.

So you're on the rack for the duration of a raga

while those ragamuffins drive your Mercedes up the semi's ramp?

There's a rampage in your rarefied

suburb, so hard to rarefy while hooligans ravish

the real estate — I can see you're hardly ravished. Be realistic,

if you dare imagine reality, and consider recantation.

To recap: there are penalties for kicking reclining citizens.
