The Physical embodiment of Aisle 49

Poverty grot and grime Have existed throughout time A place where intellect and truth cannot shine All of this is embodied on Isle 49 Segregated due to types and shapes Men acting like thoughtless apes Not even allowed to eat the smallest of grapes All of this is embodied in Aisle 49 The occasional safety rail Offers no protection from the emotional hail And the sound when Turbo starts to wail All of this is embodied in Aisle 49 The convergence of two great areas Starting the creation of diseases like Malarias Reminding me of great operatic arias All of this is embodied in Aisle 49 Oh Iku why have you forsaken me All I ever wanted was to make you see That I had one ready.

And you are the physical embodiment of Lionel, for all his spiritual beauty.

brought me to my knees with the poetic power of a military aircraft carrier
