Ok, I'm a street musician.  And sometimes this boom box goes off in my
head.  This is what's coming out now.

"I've had squatts so small that, if I died,
I couldn't have fitted a coffin inside.
I've had squatts so big that, if I lived,
I couldn't have sung all the gifts God gives."

The first couplet paraphrases a quote, so I'm stealing.  The second couplet
was my reply to that image.

Ok, your turn.

Next verse?
