Oh, you big, blundering, babbling buffoon!
I see you and the earth quakes
Narcissus looked at you and fell in love
I reach out, try to extend a hand
And am repulsed by your visage
Like a fleeting roach when the light shines

Do you reflect the truth?
Or are you a horrid demise to make
Me eat away at my own flesh?
Façade! Façade!
You run no deeper than the fingernail
On a fat thumb
The skill beneath
Reddens
Boils
BURSTS

Loathing you, I try to forget
And although I try to hide you
For I am ashamed
You find a way out
That idiot you are
