3 of [--] Clubs
The Unrefined Creation:
-- Grotesque & Mutilating

Ineptitude, chop, mutilate and scar
Being crude, spit, sully and mar
Grotesque, ugly, harsh in pain
Brutality will struggle forever in vain

Grotesque ineptitude mutilating
Harsh savagery sullying

A savage and grotesque looking hand directs our attention to the three heads he has plunged onto three pikes. The flesh has rotted away and only skulls remain.

The skulls are a sign to others that if you come near you will be killed. This guy is a murderer! He has no regard for life. He is mean and nasty, and lives like an animal. He will eat you and put your head on a pike too.

The cave painting tells us he is a primitive being. A rough and clumsy clod. He’s inept. He has no skills. His huge fat fingers don’t allow him any sensitivity or dexterity with which to create. So he rips things to shreds. He mutilates and sullies everything around him. He lives in his own filth. He is numb to the world.

The frog symbolizes ugliness. You would not want to kiss a frog. You would not even want to look at this savage. He makes The Elephant Man look like a dandy. He is hideous.

You will handle the situation in your usual inept manner. You will create a hideous monstrosity.

Don't be crude. Don't be sloppy. Don't be so rough. You're so clumsy. Clean yourself up. Take a bath. Get your dirty feet off the table. Pick up your smelly socks and underwear. Don't live like an animal.

I don't care, is a deadly snare.
Slovenly dress betokens carelessness
