Ode to the Ugliest: a poem

You of the snaggled teeth and underbite,
(no Spell-Check, not “snuggled,” never snuggled for this beast)
of the drool pooling lips and potato-shaped head,
your face so empty of symmetry,
and suffocating on excess character:


You gnarled mess of pedigreed inbreeding.
Do you recognize your disfigurement?
Where is your basket?
Your sweater?


Perhaps you speak no English.
That would explain your staring at foreigners
and living in Asia.
