The Ogre does what ogres can,
Deeds quite impossible for Man,
But one prize is beyond his reach:
The Ogre cannot master speech.
About a subjugated plain,
Among it's desperate and slain,
The Ogre stalks with hands on hips,
While drivel gushes from his lips.
Clear, unscaleable ahead,
Rise the mountains of instead
From whose cold, cascading streams
None may drink except in dreams
Soft as the earth is mankind and both need to be altered.
Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh.
Evil is unspectacular and always human,
And shares our bed and eats at our own table ....
