The Lyrics

For context, see “Good?! Oh Please; It’s Ugily!”

I’m not often shocked, but defeat’s in store
For my nerves as I observe there are no treats in store
For my eyes when I spy prime-color tries
By this guy who’ll entreat me to give
Thoughts on his raw fare; snarkly I could frown,
Say, “In art you aren’t too smart,” or some such tart put-down.
Disenchantments soar as I think some more
’bout this guy who’ll entreat me to give….

PICTURING (interrupting)

Please stow your glowering, spieling;
Do not go there with such a smear
Such ogre-cowering spieling
Will only deepen incipient rifts, I fear.


Feelings, thoughts to share; I could blather, “Gee,
This has ravished me!” but truth is, I would rather flee.


Stanch your ire; you’ll rile if you launch your bile.


Alright, let’s go see where this creep lives!
