Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

It Takes a Lot to be Always on Form
As your soul drifts on the plate
A restless feeling consumes me tonight
Banned from the end of the world
Well we realized so long, long ago, and I bet you,
There's still a little bit of your taste in my mouth.
Last night I said to her
"!Óígame compay! No deje camino por coger la vereda." (Translation: Do not stray from the road to pick up the trail)

Stay away from me, 'cause I'm in my sin
I ain't got no home
Tied down against the tracks
If you want me I'll be there

Lovely is the feelin' now
I got nasty habits, I take tea at three
Five to one, baby
I thought I heard the old man say,
"Welcome to the real world,
Build a bridge or maybe two"

My gift is my song and this one's for you
You'd be so nice to come home to
I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
