Q: how many calories in a grapefruit juice? A: Not enough poetry

I can’t say I’ve ever really looked for poetry in fruit juice of any kind and I don’t know how much I’d have expected to find.

Just at the moment, though, I feel there are altogether too many areas of my life in which there is not enough poetry, so I don’t see why grapefruit juice should be any different.

    1. What?
      Adding more calories? (I’m pretty sure I’ve seen plenty of fat on YouTube.)
      Adding more poetry? I fear there’s little hope it would be *good* poetry

      Or simply having a recommended daily allowance for poetry and having everything rated accordingly? It might create jobs for poets doing the rating, I suppose, but they probably write better when starving in garrets, so that wouldn’t necessarily be a Good Thing, would it?
