渾沌

chaos

there was once a great ruler named chaos

chaos

unlike the rulers from nearby lands

whom he often hosted

he had no face

his neighbours were so grateful

for his hospitality

they decided to thank him

by getting him a face

they thought how nice would it be

if chaos could eat and drink

talk and listen

and have a distinguished face

just like them

but chaos was doing just fine 

without a face

and the operation didn’t go well

from chapter 7 of the Zhuangzi
