<h1>BEASTLY TALES</h1>

<h1>THE HAS BEEN</h1>

<center>

***He was in an erogenous zone,
Having looked in the mirror, as he was prone.
“Perfection,” he did mutter quite loud.
“No wonder that I always draw in a crowd!”
So declared Rupert Hushbuster, the cad.
He’d always thought he was a bit of a lad!
In fact he had a narcissistic bent
Looking in windows, and mirrors, wherever he went.
A morbid self-love and self-admiration,
It gave him grandiose ideas, above his station.***


***He’d starred in many movies, the glitterati
Lauded by many as a fellow, hale and hearty.
Ladies would gasp, with unfettered delight,
At his exploits on the silver screen, both day and night.
He was accoladed as a total success,
But, in fact, his life was a real mess!
The stress of his life had worn him down.
The Paparazzi had vilified him as a bit of a clown.
And, horror of horrors, when he looked in the glass,
All he saw was a wrinkled, fat-faced ass!
“How could this have crept up on me?”
“Last time I looked, I only saw skinny.”***


***Rupert Hushbuster had been drinking too much, and using drugs.
Playing all night poker, with bad-assed thugs.
So, it was apparent he was on a down-hill glide.
Folk looking at him would now wink, and look snide!***
