"I have three mistresses.
The first has a spirit mobile as a bamboo leaf.
Her light and Playful spirit is like the feathery blossom of the eulalia.
Her eyes is like the lotus.
And her beast is as firm as the lemon.
Her hair, twisted in a single braid, falls over her golden
shoulder like a black serpent.
Her voice has the sweetness of mountain honey.
Her loins are slender and lithe.
Her thigs are round as the supple trunk of the banana-tree.
Her gait is that of a young and playful elephant.
She loves passion, knows how to give it birth and vary it!
I have three mistresses.

I have three mistresses.
The second has abundant hair which gleams and flows in long silky garlands.
Her glance would disturb the God of Love
And make the wagtail blush.
The body of that graceful women flows like a golden vine.
Her ear-rings are encrusted with precious stones.
Like a flower jewelled with frost on a cold and sunny morning.
Her clothes are summer gardens.
And temples on festival-days.
And her firm, full breasts shine like a pair of golden vases
Filled with intoxicating liquors and perfumes.
I have three mistresses.

I have three mistresses.
The hair of the third is plaited
And rolled about her head.
And never has known the sweetness of perfumed oils.
That face which mirrors passion is deformed,
Her body is like a pig's.
You'd say she was always angry.
She always scolds and complains.
Her breasts and belly exhale a fishy odour.
She is ill-favoured in her entire person.
She eats everything and drinks to excess.
And her wan eyes are always bleary.
And her bed is more repugnant than a lapwing's nest.
And she is the one i love.
And i love her because there is something more mysteriously attractive than beauty: it is corruption.
Corruption in which the eternal heat of life resides,
In which the eternal renewal of metamorphoses unfolds!
I have three mistresses..."

from 'The Torture Garden' (1899) - Octave Mirbeau

The story goes you know every detail
Everybody knows the books that I'm in
The story goes I've been self-destructive
Everybody knows that I'm steeped in sin
Everybody knows I've got no sense of humour
I'm too morose and too damn peculiar
And the weakness shows...

The story goes that I'd give up gladly
The story goes this is a deadman's prose
Everybody knows that I've fucked up badly
I'm just hanging on by the length of my nose
Everybody knows I've only got one song
And it's much too slow and it's much too long
And this is how it goes

Everybody knows this is some kinda diary
The story goes in some unsecret code
It's always later rather than sooner
I'm always there when the punch line explodes
The story goes I've got the world by the horns
And all this from a well-dressed fawn
And there's something gone wrong
