Monster Monster

Do you know what you are?
Do you know what you are?

...Nothing ever changes, nothing ever changes
By itself
-Jars of Clay, Good Monsters

So foolish, and ignorant: I am before thee [as] was a monster.
-Psalm 73:22 

And because I too, hate liberal-humanism
I decided to read Baudelaire.
But I got offended by the very first poem:
‘You, hypocrite reader, resembling me, my brother’
Mon semblable, Mon frère
- It almost smothered me even before I was done.

The ease came, no doubt, 
after my three year old daughter
showed  me how to draw a monster face
- The distorted parts rightly joined together.
