You seem to be a casual type;
I confess to being formal.
You jump right in with my first name.
I think introductions are normal.

"No shoes, no shirt, no service"
Is a sign that to you applies.
You stumble to the table
Your tousled hair in your eyes.

You ridicule my stiff reserve.
I'm appalled at your uncouth taste.
How can a person of your girth
Expose an unattired waist?

I won't asperse your character.
It may be scrupulous and fine,
Just like the grace and beauty
Of a muddy, slop swilling swine.

There's a story of Brazilian note
About just such a swine
The farmer chose to clean him up
And scrub him down this time
He scrubbed the mud off, perfumed him
And tied a great big bow
Intending then to show him off
For he just loved him so
But then to make him glamorous
He did the strangest thing
Upon his tail he carefully placed
A great big diamond ring
But suddenly the swine got loose
And fell down with a thud
He ran outside quite satisfied
And jumped back in the mud!

Same with people -

Loved the poem

Cute! And with a good message! It truly takes all kinds of people to make the world go round! We should all make an effort to accept differences and not expect everyone to be like us!

So take this poem to heart you all,
It's message is very clear,
Hold your nose, close your eyes,
And hug poor Balladeer!
