I used to be...handsome, as anyone you've ever seen.

When I think of my former handsomeness, oh, what might have been?


Now, I'm aware that 'seen' and 'been' don't actually rhyme,

but just pretend, work with me here, for I don't have the time


for 'rules' and other literal crap, I'm working without a net.

If you're one of those 'poemy purists', well, I'd also bet


you wouldn't know 'funny' if it bite you on the ass,

and are the kind of person who'll flip me shit, and won't let pass


any perceived veerage away from rules, which are set in stone.

I tell you what, pal why don't you just leave me alone?


Now, I had a point, which caused me to lie, and why

I can't remember what it was, and I blame you, try


to understand, it's nothing personal, oh, what the hell?

I think you're a bottom feeder, about that, can't you tell!
