Shirtless Grains

What did hulls ever do to shucks?
The trucks have it: red over blue,
green on the absence of cologne.

Regional strictures say: regrowth
is an econometric ideal
bailed out of bastionland
and handed a handout
a worksheet that must be rerun.

Bureaus held definitional contests:
finish this exam and eat a pound
of lentil barley soup
(hold the wild rice,
We don't make time
out of sagebrush).

Callous ballyhoo 
scrawled English
enough for you?
on the side of a
pre-modern tennis ball.
