This is my retrofit on an Olivia Benjamin lyric:
That PIN number pontiff
North America smarts
experimentally tempestuous
window dressing
sweet as singe
bullfighting birth certificate

terrifying pipe dream
newness rebuilt
politeness hostage to tiger
leery breadbasket
undress as understandable
descend greatly
