Beauty - Poem by Irving Kaufman, M.D.

Beauty is ubiquitous but paradoxical
Often it is quite quixotical.
Consider the case of the toad
Who in reality is a prince.
Is his a more difficult road
Than the prince who is really a toad?
Tragedy resides in their lack of success
Neither could win the favor of the princess!
