Caveat Emptor!

Listed Jan 2015

 My dear your eyes they shine so bright,

They're like dead whitings in the night,

Your arms are brawn, brown and tough,

Your skin like any  hog's back, rough,

Your voice the screech owl does excel,

Your  breath a pole cat's is as well,

Your mouth a sparrow's , is my dear,

It reaches but from ear to ear,

In you such charms at once combine,

I choose you for my valentine.
