A Few Readings from “Designer Babies Still Get Scabies”
I’m really excited and thankful for your support, and I’m really glad that some of you are liking it so far.
Okay, so for this first poem, it just so happens to be about air pollution, inspired by a time when our camper van broke down in LA smog, where you just couldn’t see more than one or two car lengths in front of you.
I’m sure those of you in LA are used to it. Anyway, this one is called, “Dog in the Smog.”
I misplaced my dog in the LA smog
Oh look there’s a radioactive frog
Tycoons turned all the trees to logs
Now I wear a gas mask to walk my dog
I know it’s a little dystopian. But can you blame me after all this?
Alright, this next one is called, “Let’s Pretend We’re Robots.”
let’s pretend we’re indestructible robots
who actually care about nature a lot
we’ll forget everything we’ve been taught
and give away all that crap we bought
we can use our megawatts and kilowatts
to push out all the despot,
greedy execs, vampires and juggernauts
then we’ll give destruction the boycott
knock out all our toxic cultural rot
silence all those silly gunshots
cleanse our noses of radioactive snot
shutter every last stinking feedlot
quit killing trees to build parking lots
planting forests of peach tree and apricot
ponderosa pine, juniper and even loquat
making homes for cool creatures like the ocelot
(they should probably be our mascot)
and even if we get caught
for thickening the Man’s plot
(as indestructible robots
who care about nature a lot)
giving our little world a shot
is so much better than not…
just a little food for thought.
Okay, one more. This one’s nice and quick. It’s called, “Mainstream Kibble.”
Why you gotta nibble on that mainstream kibble?
Time to scare yourself and live a little.

I’ve already heard from some of you, I know you like it, I know some of you will not like it, and that’s totally cool, but I’ll tell you just a little bit more.
We have plenty of words that came in from past guests of this show who you listeners will be familiar with.
So let’s start with a recent guest, best-selling author Sarah Fragoso. Here’s what she says about “Designer Babies Still Get Scabies”…
“Mostly silly? Ok, sure – but as I chuckled, I also felt my heart tighten up at Abel’s ability to give us a huge dose of 2019 reality. This little poetry book screams WAKE UP – nothing like humor mixed with a big ol’ dose of truth to get us to pay more attention to where we need to make some significant changes in the world. Highly recommended, I’m giving this to everyone I know!”
– Sarah Fragoso, Bestselling Author
Thank you so much for that, Sarah.
And another recent guest and friend of the show, Akshay Nanavati, says…
“A highly entertaining, brilliantly crafted, and deeply profound look at the current state of the human condition. It will challenge you, confront you and perhaps even shock you… but whether or not you agree with it, it’s near impossible to deny the sheer genius of this poetic masterpiece. The wit and wisdom within these pages will stay with you long after you put this book down.”
– Akshay Nanavati, Bestselling Author
Thanks so much, man.
Alright, so in case you don’t know what this book is all about, in “Designer Babies” you’ll meet indestructible robots, world-conquering pumpkins, $300 million fighter jets, dog-eating dinosaurs, judgemental Sasquatch and for the first time ever, the Dastardly Zuckerburglar.
Speeding through true stories of eels on cocaine, you’ll ultimately discover why designer babies and brain implants won’t save us as we tumble toward the Singularity.
Okay, so, this part’s really cool because this book would be totally censored by any reasonable publisher. We’re independently publishing this one all ourselves, and that means that I can give you the Audiobook for free when you buy the paperback book.
And when you claim your free Audiobook, we’ll automatically enter you into our giant giveaway for over $800 bucks of cool stuff.
