And all the little monsters said in a chorus:
You must kiss us.
What! You who are evil,
Ugly and uncivil.
You who are cruel,
Afraid and needy,
Uncouth and seedy.
Yes, moody and greedy.
Yes, you must bless us.
Bu the evil you do,
The endless ado.
Why bless you?
You are composed of such shameful stuff.
Because, said the monsters, beginning to laugh,
Because, they said, cheering up.
You might might as well. You are part of us.
