  6. Two Witches Discuss Good Grooming

    'How do you keep your teeth so green
    Whilst mine remain quite white?
    Although I rub them vigorously
    With cold slime every night.

    Your eyes are such a lovely shade
    Of bloodshot, streaked with puce.
    I prod mine daily with a stick
    But it isn't any use.

    I envy so, the spots and boils
    That brighten your complexion
    Even rat spit on my face
    Left no trace of infection.

    I've even failed to have bad breath
    After eating sewage raw,
    Yet your halitosis
    Can strip paint from a door.'

    'My dear, there is no secret,
    Now I don't mean to brag.
    What you see is nature's work
    I'm just a natural hag.'

    John Coldwell

    It was in Read Me 2.
    Last verse should be in italics.
