From Acrostic to Zuckerberg

Kangaroos in leather leotards,
Kneeling in lemon leggings,
Kicking in lavender loafers,
Trashed Helú’s estate —
Ransacked it chanting: hallelujah!

Beyond Yucatan’s esplanades,
Newts, drifting in New Guinea,
In nearly every quarter, uttered,
A little improbably,
Thank you —

The harpy eagles, yowling with owls,
Upended liners, destroyed dams. It’s
Sincerely a proper property effacement
Affair, remarked Yesenia,
Opening up Spinoza’s Ethics.
