Like—Write a poem where each line has one of the following:

1!. A brand of beer!.
2!. A make of car!.
3!. The name of a band!.
4!. The name of a pro sports team!.

They cannot be used in the proper context like 'I drink Schlitz' (yes, Stroh's is brewing it again) or 'I drive a Chevy!.'

'I ford the stream
over rolling rocks!.'

We packed the bud tightly in the bong,
Mustang Sally at full volume on the radio!.

Delivers harsh blow, as Mustang falls behind!.
Here comes the Colt!.

Guns and Roses!.!.!.

I catch kokanee fish at night
Under a super nova
Two Eagles survey my catch

Cool! Gotta try this one!. Gimme an hour or so!.!.!.

One day I'lll soar up through the sky,
With the Eagles I will fly,

Now winter ice and snow bring pain
And I must go by Jefferson Airplane!.

In the bush, a sequoia
made the stand
against the wood
