Are you level? How’s your trim?
Do you rotate, eddy, or spin?
Are you game? What’s your trick?
Do you vibrate, bounce, or tick?
What’s your cut? Are you correct?
Do you detour, bend, or stretch?

We’re milling through the grinder, grinding through the mill
If this is not an exercise, could it be a drill?

How’s it with you? What’s your form?
Your outline, shape, or form
How’s your price? What do you cost?
Your value, profit, or loss
How’s your skull? Does it fit?
Is your mind free, empty, or split?

Drill drill drill
Dugga dugga dugga
