(First rough draft, no time to re-write,
i am getting ready to go to teach in a prison
gotta boogy in four minutes, will re-write manana.)

So i’m waiting for my tires
to get balanced at BF Goodrich
and before me is an aquariaum with
colored fishes swimming and doing what fish
in aquariums do, and i notice
the yellow and black stripped fishes
swim together, the black mollies are
side by side and the sword tails chase one another.
Now, when they were born, they could not see themselves
and have no mirrow to show themselves what they look like.
So how do they know how to asociate only with their own kind?
