Straight, No Chaser

Let's try for five-beat couplets, neat and polished:
Restore what deconstructionists demolished.


That politician is the pride and joy
Of every single Ordinary Boy.


Merrill and Wilbur, tutor me in rhyme,
And reason me from worldly to sublime.


Increase agility through exercise
Until you work words with a gymnast's ease.

These couplets sound like manifestos of a renaissance, perhaps a romantic renaissance?

Well done. The first one was the best :)
