If Cursed Be Beauty


Beauty is a curse
But yours stare and say
'Think not of me a curse
But if must thou,
Then marry my beautiful curse esteemly to thy mind'
If cursed be beauty
To weary becomes a folly
As might other men an ally of thought
For then I am cursed by you
For your beauty becomes my curse
But feel no guilt, still
B'cuz I shall lark in thy embrace
To endear this curse is perforce
And so I shall esteemly bear
To the adulation of thy mortal self
Till the arrival of the Jews.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
