Teeth and Mind Scattered
O the magnitude of her decrepitude
Wandering the streets alone
In desperate search for a cigarette.
Her features most hideous
In a condition quite piteous,
Teeth and mind scattered about
Desperate for a way out.
What to do with a decrepit shrew?
What have I with her to do?
Whence came this crazy lass?’
No idea what’s in her past.
By parents likely quite forsaken
(O for granted blessings taken!)
Caring for a little one,
Won’t be long ’til life is done.
Can’t neglect the ones He gives
In everyone His image lives.
