Ugly


Ugly said it all.
I played with light,
Smeared the glass,
Blurred my vision -
Still an arse, my face.

I drank a little more,
Talked it up - tanked up!
Still the hideous whore
Was howling in disdain,

For Ugly stared again.

F**ked up, I gave up -
Took a hefty pill.

Ugly died an ill.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
