• Beauty

    by Brianna Sanders

    Beauty is a creature
    Vile, hungry, insidious,
    Leading lives astray by its rapture,
    Listless, unyielding, drooling;
    In her wake lay hanging jaws.
    Beauty is a siren,
    Spouting temptation from her maw,
    Wasted corpses are all you’ll find,
    Of young maidens with beauty in mind,
    For a skeleton is beautiful,
    And in the name of that beauty,
    These things are more than plentiful,
    For she is nothing but a plague,
    Tempting weaker orbs to linger and feast,
    Upon the presence of this monster.
    But do not give in,
    For beauty is a beast!
