Preening with jetski money,
don’t champ Cliff when his Amarok
bounces in to Oma’s sandy carpark.
It’s not his fault he’s as obnoxious
as one of Dave Sabo’s solos.
When you go to Dili I get
Epicly Later’d past bedtime;
Oyola’s gnarly nosegrinds popped
off bumps he poured himself.
Cloudbreak smothers a fat chump
then I watch a deck flip, you slip
out of a backside tailslide
styled across a loading dock fifth step.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
