Something Smells

Something Smells Shall I compare you to a stinky fart? Your stench is more profound and daunting Clean wind could blow such clouds apart Yet your trauma remains thus haunting Perhaps a skunk's defense could seem perfume Amongst it's kind like a warrior's pride A bloated corpse could seem ideal to consume Scavengers enjoy those long after they've died But your putrid odor has no possible praise Nor would anyone happily greet you You seem forever cursed to live out your days Sickening everyone that would meet you So long as I use my nose to breathe and my eyes to see I hope you live your life far away from me
