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!
