Oh To Be Ugly And Thick

Oh to be ugly and thick,
to have been touched by the ugly stick,
so my look's would not fade away,
i would be ugly every day,

Oh to be thick and ugly,
not knowing that two and one make three,
so my brain doesn't gradually go,
and my reactions start getting slow,

Oh to be ugly and thick,
not to have a face so shiny and slick,
but warts, wrinkles and droopy eyes,
thin lips, long ears and a faceful of styes,

Oh to be thick and ugly,
i look in the mirror and i don't see me,
i remember less every day,
until everything just fades away.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
