BED OF THORNS

He litters his walkway with gold
And dazzles your eyes with all his silver
He puffs a royal fragrance over his smelly fart
Foolishly you sneak out at night
Into his bed of thorns.

Poor child
I wonder if your sight fails you
For if they don’t
You would know from his gray
That your grandfather is a boy to him

But it is these fancy things
Tours to foreign cities
Goodie bags of old witches
That you exchange for your pride
On his bed of thorns!
