A Penny For Your Thoughts

 
Twist the knife and fling
little flirtation and smile behind the scenes
Post regret in mind
a red haired witch...aye

Dagger to sheath it isn't
swing wide and cut with precision
A legion's terror
aimed for the throat
cut deep and dig further...goat

Insidious lust for greed's sake
a dominion of trust forsaken
Jeering from both sides to your mouth
gagging on the venom

Burn the tongue
and the wither the corpse
all you evil

The soul away
lingering in the dark
waiting to bate the lark

A pittance for your thoughts
