THE GREAT CANADIAN

I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin the environment. I will not ruin it.




ENGENDERMENT LOG

This is a thing. Over and over, he writes, “I will not ruin the thing.” He crafts each thing, each thing. He notes his thing’s thing on the thing. Over and over. He writes things, “things,” “things.” This is not the thing. He will not ruin each thing. He listens as he writes, as each thing resounds. He writes a thing over and over and he listens to things, to things. The things tremble; things in things surround things. This may finish in things.

His his our lesson. Ourselves and yourselves, he writes, “I we’ll not ruin he environment.” He crafts she scratch, she symbol. He notes his hand’s rhythm on he board. Ourselves and yourselves. He writes rhythm, “not,” “ruin.” His his not he environment. He we’ll not ruin she symbol. He listens ours he writes, ours she scratch resounds. He writes our lesson yourselves and ourselves and he listens to notes, to nots. He letters tremble; sense I sentence surrounds sound. His me finish I nonsense.
