Here at home we'll play in the city
Powered by the sun
Perfect weather for a streamlined world
There'll be spandex jackets
One for everyone
What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

(2) How might we employ rhetorical principles to analyze and evaluate these strategies of community building?
