I quite liked what I saw
but naturally my creativity kicked in
for not a thing exists
that can not be improved.

So I rolled up my sleeves,
cracked my knuckles and got to work,
full attention turned on
accomplishing my master piece.

Unleashing my talents
I excelled at changing inferior styles.
I took much pride in
filing away at offensive shortcomings.

And after applying the last
finishing touches to achieve perfection,
I excitedly stepped back
ready to praise my own genius.

To my dismay you were gone.
