So much of this.

The world needs this.
So much.


There was a land, which I suppose
Where everyone had a crooked nose;

And the crooked nose that everyone had
In no manner did make him sad.

But in that land a man was born
Whose nose was more straigh and clean was worn;

And the men of that land with public hate
Killed the man whose nose was straight.
