Ever seen a smile that cuts short with a sigh?
It glows like lightening
Stands upright and flows beautifully like a fountain
And drops in glamour, splashing its body on earth’s treasure
Beneath those smiles is a dark, wicked, omen
Teary, dark eyes, red like vampires
The finesse of the face that sparks with splendor
Holds a mouth filled with venom
Desperate to strike and clutch a prey
Trust those smiles boy?
But, oh boy, keep one eye open
Lest you sleep and yea a strike, stiff like a cobras’ sting
Brings you crushing beneath earth’s untrusted brink
And those smiles stare at you and sigh
Small, foolish boy, who told you thou were great?
You’d rot below my feet and I’d triumph over your face
Feigning my tears from a crocodile’s eyes
Next time, oh yea, you’d never trust a scanty smile
