Beware of the Vicious Woman
Beware of trusting a vicious woman.
If she's mean to others, she'll be mean to you.
She's not a noblewoman.
She'll try to trick you, playing with your heart.
Be on the alert.
Of the vicious woman,
She uses words as swords, tearing you a part.
As soon as you see her, you'll run to depart.
She tries to set your mind up in a state of confusion.
She'll make up lies; believing her own lies.
She doesn't have many allies.
That run too her defense,
Because they all know, she's a vicious woman.
She could be your sister, or sister in-law,
If she's your sister, she'll try to steal your inheritance.
Because of her own arrogance,
She thinks; she's above the law.
She could be your neighbor, or someone that you thought you could trust; opening up your heart.
If she's your neighbor, she'll steal your cats and dog.
She has no more sense than a wild hog.
Beware of the vicious woman.
