Are We Crazy?

Absolutely free!

But it can cause worse damage

yellow lace, age spots

from rusting.

Drives you a little crazy.

Rust–one of the toughest stains,

but all you really need

is the safer substitute,

a splash of something.


A sweeter smelling way,

a secret liquid

that makes you tight and taut.

It’s all you really need

to breathe easy again.

Not a week goes by

that our feet don’t smell any more.

A river of dust pours

with a little of this.

Absolutely free

from rusting.

Are we crazy?
