The Maiden of Folly: A Poem

Updated on January 6, 2014

I'm here in the street of lies

In the fury of a monster's breathe

Munching a python's bile

Faking the smile of a stranger


The hips sway

Eyes flip in a wye

Thoughts race in hot pursuit

Desires flame

With a pant of shame

Shake the hailings

Purge the stomach

Her body her money

Humping away her essence

In the bedroom of lust

Her needs in sweet anguish

Spoken tongues of a champion fool

Her vile a folly


Joy is on her mouth

Her will is a moving wheel

To the glory of her gain

To conquer all rods

Their eyes for the gloryhole

In the street of lies

Lined for the counting

Maidens with skimpy wears

Bodies of a royal bride

Before the night stars

Hawk their wares

In wait for a hard stuffing

Disgrace for honor

I hail all the ladies of the night

Money turned their heads

I'm here in the street of lies...
