Estrella's Prophecies #1

Evacuate morality by making all assertions
equivalent and inconsequential. Vowing
never to take shower, Randy as a goat Wonder
Bread worker wins lottery. Break the law,
there are advantages. No, Turn on Red. White
fringed stop signs do not require a full
stop. Jaywalking and sidewalk gobbing to
your lugubrious limit. Fuck the police,
use protection. Throw chocolate chips
in toll house change baskets. Litter,
it's unlawful. Abiding citizens be careful,
you are through being ruled. One way means
a choice in direction today. Drop another
coin in the slot and I will tell more.
