Treasure Island

Gypsy Boy Varey


The Mistress of Lies and Stealth


Reverberations of 'tut tut'
Has always been the sound
That because she's such a slut
Always follows her around

She's permanently disguised
As lamb but really mutton
Two eyes that are oversized
She's always been a glutton

Don't bet your life she wouldn't
Give a damn about her name
Always chasing what she shouldn't
She has always been the same

Dressed up like a dog's dinner
She always looks the part
To play the role of sinner
The tart without a heart

What goes on in her mind?
God alone only knows
Your guess is as good as mine
Cant's she see she's sunk so low?

Can't she see what others see?
That she is fooling herself
Is this what she wants to be?
The mistress of lies and stealth

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
