You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely

The left eye is to be penned crisply,
with a simple solace,
throughout its sapphire abyss.

Make the eye to its right bland,
undaunted by what the new day brings,
but unwilling to overcome the ordinary;
a slacker.

The smile is to scorn the Mona Lisa,
in a style attained by only jealous mockery,
only unequivocal presumptions,
only thin air.

The nose must depict a casual laugh,
standing alone, unafflicted,
I would like it to be puce.

Pen the rest of the face roughly,
pay no attention to detail.
A scribbley in-between is best
to serenade the hubris.
