Suzanne Somers promotes a fountain
That has some doctors upset.
It affords a juice which has been recommended
In order to hear voices far away or of the dead.

I wasn't even suspicious about that place.
You don't have to call the plastic surgeon in a futile fight.

But this truly is a person
Who had gone to gruesome lengths
To keep her pinch of powder out of this skull
And mix the gland juice with the powder.

A raw food is said to be Demi Moore.
It is hard to know whether to be impressed, suspicious or amused.

Mrigashira natives will help you zap your handset back to life
When every juice is gone. Frequently named in the Bible,
Their absence would be famous for the fatness
Of the olive and the sprightly juice
Of this popular new Jamba Juice flavor.

Now therefore, while the youthful hue
Sits on thy skin like morning dew,
This is a country that has always been suspicious of centralized government.

I like this, with its inferences to the political, celebrity,and religious. Nice balance.

I like the overlapping subjects and use of imagery here.

These verbal snapshots combine to create an intriguing pastiche of our pop-culture zeitgeist.
