I challenge you to slay this ugly monster.

God created men, and men created this beast.

He has inflicted harm since the beginning of time.

This distasteful being might as well be the devil himself.

 

I challenge you to slay this ugly monster.

He has presented himself on buses.

Some of you have seen him destroy relationships.

This beast will continue to pride himself on outward appearance.

 

I challenge you to slay this ugly monster.

He will continue to replicate like DNA.

He wants you to see what newborns consider irrelevant.

He will not rest until he conquers the soul of humankind.

 

I challenge you to slay this ugly monster.

Many of you choose not to mention his name.

I wish he was a character of fantasy.

Unfortunately, he appears in every dictionary.
