Pre-packaged, pre-molded, the result of the readymade—
Perhaps a work from the infamous Marcel Duchamps himself?
Darlin’ they’ll stamp you with a number,
designate your genius
on a scale from 1-800,
so recite your ABC’s square those
123’s, take your SAT’s the ACT’s ERB’s
God help us please…

But honey that’s just the way it goes
So I suppose that since you’re predisposed you might as well enclose
(so they don’t misdiagnose) your aptitude when utilizing polyphonic prose.
