False Led [Throwback Thursday]

Wide eyes beguiled by pursed lips and strings
Temptation crouches low as a tiger
Hunting coy glances and diamond rings
Tiger now an ox who plots beside her

Promises of riches, fame, and love
Sing ma cherie, thou little gold canary
The wolf now disguised as a sheepskin glove
Once gentle, he acts to the contrary

And they’ll dance as snakes in courtship
smother and crush their ribs and wants
Blame the rat for sinking their warship
Spell out expectations in different fonts
