Janie Debeers
says I have big ears.
Sally McPlatt
says I'm too fat.
Ronnie Segall
says I'm too tall.
Jenny Ann Wong
says my hair's too long.

Know what I say
when they say things like that?

Jesus' hair was longer
than mine.
Abraham Lincoln was
rather tall.
Santa Claus is jolly
and fat,
and I'm proud
that I look like them all.

(Of course, if they don't buy that....
