Precious Pearls

I have laughed at greater men

mocked the women around them

who think they are sublime

but are swine with stolen pearls.

I have fought far greater battles

than you boast of in the hall

but can never admit the one fact

of how you stole those pearls.

I will scoff at your painful demise

along with that of your whores

who feasted on the virgins’ blood

while not leaving a single pearl.

They will hang you in the street

for you are far from noble blood

a bastard from another whore

that the king must now erase

to protect that one last pearl-his daughter.
