Beautiful Twice


1
the teacher says
give me a sentence
anyone, quick
with the word
“beautiful” twice…

Angelic Mike
sings his response:
My father always says,
“Beautiful day, makes one beautiful too”


2
the teacher applauds
and so does the class
everyone’s heart warms to the core;
and teacher points to Wild Danny
“Give us one, Danny, ” she says

3
“Oh, ” says Danny Wild,
“last evening at our dining table
my sis in high school
she said she’s with baby
and she doesn’t know who;
and my daddy he said:
'Beautiful…shitty beautiful''

...another online joke that was languishing in foul company, now transformed almost like Angelic Mike would do...
