Pretty-Ugly

This is a pretty-ugly world,

On the surface, I fear,

It’s pretty-ugly under the ground,

Beneath our concrete gardens,

Our glass houses and towers,

It’s where we stow the bones,

It’s where we stow the bones,

Keep them out of sight,

From the pretty-ugly world,

The pretty-ugly women,

The pretty-ugly men,

All the pretty-ugly disasters,

That are invented by them,

Making pretty-ugly decisions,

Choosing pretty-ugly words,

Being pretty-ugly to each other,

Underneath, I fear.
