Insanity and Vanity

A pretty face looks better with a nose
Though many feel that surgery’s the way;
I cannot understand but I suppose
That spite destroying beauty is OK.

You disagree with friends, so what of that?
A proper friend can’t be a mindless clone.
You’d better find a way to chew the fat,
Or reconcile to living all alone.

They may believe that you were in the wrong
You may both be, but cannot both be right.
True love demands that partners get along
Although they see the World in diff’rent light.

However you’ve been wronged this rule stays true,
Self-mutilation will not work for you.
