Ode, to the Mighty Midget Omac [In English and Spanish]

Part One
Midget History

I am thirty-six inches tall, that is all–

Honest to god I am
My hair is green, my eyes red, and I

Have a very thick neck

My eyebrows are thin, and my beard

Has three hairs…
And I bore abuse, when I was young

Yes! It happened to be; day by day…

…folks laugh at me, my appearance

You see…I make them appalled.
.

I am middle aged, not very old, nor am

I: pious, poor, or a fool;
My wrinkles and blemishes are as they

Are–I’d not change them

…for food or gold… .

I came from a race, from within the earth

More ancient than man himself;
So what do I do, I leave it to you–

Just call me Omac, the Mighty Midget.

.

Ah! I’ve lived in this world of evil and bad–

Sad and heartbreaking, to say the least
Everyone preoccupied with everything–

With neighbors, housewives and thieves.

The only one I can think of, that I do not

Despise or hate, is an acquaintance
I’ve met, in the depths of Iceland,

He left me a riddle to think:

Said he “Why do you call me a great man?
