Pied Beauty As fractured by Janet Kenny

God did a good job with the spotty,
in fact He enjoyed it a lot. He
        speckled and rippled
        and dabbled and stippled
as if He were totally potty.


No Worst, There Is None As fractured by Anon

O what could be worser than this?
These pangs bring me to the abyss.
        Weeping and sniffs!
        The mind’s full of cliffs!
To leap off those cliffs would be bliss.
