Bon Iver

Bon Iver
Incomprehensibly beauteous, beguiling to the point of perfection, and beyond the perception or recognition of mankind?
Better than that.

Man sits down
To essay write
He'll likely stay up
All through the
For 24 hours, is
Not so long
When 1800 words
Must be Done.

This verse successfully conveys the predicament of a man with much work and little time. The capitalisation of the lexis 'Done' transforms the word from informal verb to abstract proper noun, thus projecting the idea that 'Done' is an important state of being which must be reached within the time constraints of the a single day.

3 a.m. Burger

3 a.m. burger
What ever could be better?
Despite lack of meat
Vegetables suffice
The hunger-filled man
As he voyages home
Through streets lamp-lit
Every occurrence
Seems full of wit
Perhaps it's the beer.

As is lucidly obvious in this verse, the protagonist of the text is hungry and, it can be implied, drunk. It is likely because of this that he finds the sub-standard quality food to be of great benefit to his personal being. Even though it's probably pretty shit.
