Beauty's No Excuse...By Talile Ali - Poem by Talile Ali

I'VE SEEN SOME STUFF
OH WHAT A DISGRACE
MOST OF THEM DONE
BY A BEAUTIFUL FACE
MAKES ME WONDER
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN RACE?

AS I MEDITATED
ON THIS OBSERVATION
I BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT
THE GENERALIZATIONS
ABOUT HOW UGLY
EVIL IS IN OUR NATIONS

BUT AS IT TURNED OUT
IT JUST ISN'T THAT WAY
SEEMS THAT PRETTY FOLK
ARE THE ONES NOT OK
THEY DO SOME SHIT
AND DO EXPECT TO GETAWAY

BECAUSE THEY ARE
BEAUTIFUL TO THE EYE
BECAUSE OF THAT
EVERYONE WILL DENY
THE EVIL THEY DO
MAKES YOU WANNA CRY


SURE AS FAILURE
SEEMS TO FALL THAT WAY
THERE ARE PRETTY PEOPLE
WHO WILL MAKE YOU PAY
BLINDING US ALL TO THEIR
SCREWED UP VICIOUS PLAY

WILL IT ALWAYS HAVE
TO BE THIS WAY
JUDGED BY PLEASANT LOOKS
TILL WE ALL DECAY
BECAUSE THEIR FOUL DECEIT
MADE US SO TODAY

BEAUTY IS NO EXCUSE
A SOCIOPATH WILL BE
ONE TO DISH OUT A WORLD OF ABUSE
WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY
BEAUTY IS NO EXCUSE
FOR SUCH IMPUNITY

BEAUTY IS NO EXCUSE
