Since, I'm like 75.8 percent sure that most of you guys aren't poets, I'll read some of my pieces. No one interrupt.

CORRIANDER and SAL start snapping, everyone else half heartedly follows suit.

kale (CONT'D)

Shalom, shalom. Here it goes. (clears throat) The earth. The plants. The ocean. Dead. You. Me. Your mother. Dead. Your fault. Not my fault because I recycle you ignorant pigs. Dead. For all of eternity. (beat) Namaste.

CORRIANDER and SAL are crying. Members look scared and offended.

That just made...reevaluate everything I've done with my life. Totes amazeballs.

CORRIANDER

(sniffling) It's like that feeling you get when you walk outside...and you touch a bush...and you're like...yes, this is what a leaf is like. A leaf. That was what your poem made me feel, Kale. OMG. So rad.

Corriander

Now it's my turn for my poem.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

More members get up to leave. KALE and CORRIANDER exchange worried looks.

kale

Okay, I guess poetry's isn't everybody's cup of Oohlong Tea. How about we...

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

Corriander

Perform an original skit, that I wrote.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

kale

You sure about that? It was kind of rough the last time I read it...

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014 2 versions.

Corriander

Yes! I'm sure! Kale, places!

Remaining members look very confused. KALE and CORRIANDER start off the skit with an interpretive dance. KALE lays parallel to the ground to represent the rivers. CORRIANDER starts rolling around and kicking KALE to represent the damage pollution causes to rivers. CORRIANDER and KALE then lay parallel to each other on the ground and start doing "the worm" to represent the ocean. Then they start faking seizures to represents what happens to the ocean when they are contaminated. The actors should also mimick noises of sea animals dying while doing the ocean bit. The skit should end with actors on their knees flailing around, representing the end of the world. Most members leave as the skit is going on. Only SAL is left. As the skit ends...

Stop clapping, Sal!

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

SAL starts snapping fingers.

Hold it! Where did everyone else go?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

kale

Maybe they're all playing a joke on us. Haha. Very funny all. (harshly) Now you guys, get back before we permanently banish you all from the society.

sal

Most of them left, when you guys started rolling around the floor.

Oh my Buddha, who asked you Sam?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

sal

It's Sal! Don't tell me you've forgotten my name too!

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

WTF, Corriander. WTF. I need a drink. Pour me some of the apple cider vinegar, please.
