Daffy Duck launched
a tunnel to the sky
--Babel, Babylon, "Intolerance..."
(Legend of 1916)
He gets going through space and time,
straight into the Mouth of God--
He is then sent back
down through his dimensional tunnel,
where he gets caught
in the claustrophobic hold of it.
God sends down a Dyson Ball of solid mud
to strangulate Daffy,
whose face strobes for the viewer in a cryptic,
of macabre flashes,
looking like a tortured clay animation puppet.
I struggled up a hill
trying to find
additional words with which to complete this
After being put through literal hell
On the way down....

(It is of singular note that this poem is actually eighty words long. Unless I miscounted. But you need a hundred.)
