Life Is Ugly


Life is ugly.
It is.
It is ugly.
It's a slop.
It rots.
It stinks.
It devours.
It demands.
It leaves crap around.
Life just ain't what it was cracked up to be.

It needs help...
A clean-up here...
An arrangement there...
A peacemaker...
Some tools...
Some burning...
Some vision...
It needs a good husbandman
To put his hand to it
And bring it out of its ugliness
Because you know
Life is really a beautiful thing.
It is.
It is beautiful.
Life is beautiful.
