~~~ Rent Girl ~~~
~ Rent Girl ~
She engenders possibility,
This societal instability.
Her rapacious feudal lord,
A bane,and leit-motiv,
Of this pretty's daily fare.
An intermezzo in her operatic pain,
Plagues a languid economy,
When interspersed with his legal,weekly steal.
Like molten magma,
Conducted along the all too familiar course
Of that exacting misery;
The constant companion who never leaves her,
Does not bless,
Nor is friends with another.
He mocks a nefarious valediction;
Stares down his nose at his obscure prey.
Accompanies careless affectations,
Only serve to wound,and dismiss
This penniless beauty.
A burgeoning hope springs anew.
No longer inflamed,and defamed;
No more is she financially deflowered
By her ogreish tormentor.
Upon scales of justice
And found wanting.
His fostered illusions,
Now tattered,and shattered.
The fickle hand of fortune
Spreads its' bounty in her favour;
He sins,she wins;
Now he's at the mercy
Of her mortgaged time.
Must he suffer at her whim,
As the brutish freak is tamed.
