Beauty: To Do

Catherine Wing

10:00, 3:00, 7:00, feed the dragon.
Practice happy face, smile, no ugh.
Please march, as the drum bangs on.

For the garden, salt on the slugs,
And only Sundays to slack off.
Be, Beauty, Be! Don't lurk.

Remember B-12 for agony,
B-6 and C in case of heart ruckus.
Don't mention 100 years slumber, the rape, again.

Wipe your feet after trekking in briar muck.
Catch up with your lag.
Revitalize your too-tired luck.

Be charming to guests until they are gone.
In case of fire, call for a fire truck.
When the Prince is around, make sure to be on.
