Saprophytic

Her words form plaited ribbons of lies.  
In her web of deception she will weave † †  
serpents tongue and dour disguise. † †  
† †  
A saprophyte, feeding to minimize † †  
what the torpid are able to perceive. † †  
Her words form plaited ribbons of lies, † †  
† †  
strung together to neutralize † †  
dissent among those who disbelieve † †  
serpents tongue and dour disguise. † †  
† †  
She moves with intent as seasons rise, † †
shackling those she would deceive. † †  
Her words form plaited ribbons of lies. † †  
† †  
There will be those who martyrize, † †
seeking her favor to apperceive † †  
serpents tongue and dour disguise. † †  
† †  
Who among us will alchemize † † †
this foul beastís hold upon the naÔve. † †  
Her words form plaited ribbons of lies, † †
serpents tongue and dour disguise. † †
