Beauty's Beast

Poem By Daniel Murphy

Beauty is annoying
It stares you in the face.
It's very like the truth
It puts you in your place.

It makes you feel unworthy
It brings you hurt inside.
You can't stand to see it
Whether near, far or wide.

Beauty is skin deep
Or so we are told.
Tell that to the ugly one
Standing in the cold.

The beauty sipping champagne
Lazing by the fire.
Life can seen unfair
Rather sad and rather dire.

But don't forget they're stupid
It's part of who they are.
You're the really smart one
More intelligent by far.

Skin will go saggy
Beauty will fade.
You'll possess the knowledge
Through knowledge you are made.

Beauty is here
Then beauty is gone.
Knowledge is power
Knowledge keeps you strong.

So don't feel too bad
When a beauty walks your way.
Think about their IQ
You'd outsmart them any day.

Beauty dies fast
It has nowhere to hide.
That's why you should feel good
You shouldn't feel annoyed!

It's time for another day
When the sun chases the darkness away.

The light creeps through.

He takes a loaded gun.
He wants a bloody frenzy
So takes more than just the one.

That calls out your name?

That eases your pain?

Strip away the cloth
Reveal your natural layer.
Bear no man-made garment
Display your skin and hair.

Mirror, Mirror

Vanity you’ve come to know
So much so you’re called a pro.

Battered little heart
Look how you’re bruised
You took such a beating
To which you are used.
