Kind Ogre

I have a huge head and a wrinkled brow. My eyebrows meet, my eyes squint. I have a flat, broad nose and a great gash of a mouth from which hang two huge tusks. My skin is hairy, my arms are enormous, my legs are sharp as sword blades, and my feet are as flat as ducks’. I keep to myself because I am the most hideous and laughable fellow in the world.

But if you’re kind to me, I’ll be kind to you.
