To you I bequeath short legs and big thighs
You may partake of two strangely shaped eyes
Hair thick, chin small
Big butts for all
You’re my children and there is no disguise

On you someday my nose may sport a ring
My neck on you a mom tattoo – charming
A ring through your brow
They’re your bodies now
Must you subject them to customizing?
