THE TRANSMOGRIFYING PLEDGE (A POEM)

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE to the FLAG
of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA
and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands,
ONE NATION under GOD,
INDIVISIBLE,
with LIBERTY
and JUSTICE
for ALL

I PLEDGE MY BODY TRUST to the VAҲҲ
of the MEGA CORPORATIONS of EARTH
and to the GLOBAL OLІGARCHY for which they stand,
ALL CITIES under VІRAL FEAR,
MEDIA DIVISIBLE,
with VAҲҲ PASSPORTS
and AI SURVEILLANCE
for 99.74%
