Howitzer against an out-house...
It's the remineralization of teeth that allow for a cat-gnawing show
or the burning of smallish dogs when Smokey the Bear is your foe
Revenge equals retaliation as grass knows when a mower will mow
Frozen water's snow, a loose woman's a hoe, a female deer is a doe
A howitzer against an out-house is one shitty mess even set on low
shafts shifted with warming impermanence rankle those who know
to watch growths fibroblastic, gestational, tumid & multiloculated,
off-centered, asymmetrical, encrusted, trophoplasmic & delineated
