OH POOR WOEBEGONE PEARL

Oh POOR, WOEBEGONE PEARL

Oh poor woebegone pearl!
what has happened to your lustre?

Why have you stopped gleaming?

Where is your oceanic wonder?

Say again?! Oh they have defiled you!

Pissed and shat on you with putrid words

Beleaguered you with equally abominable acts

Have they taken you from the

Seraglio where you thrived and dumped you in the

Gutter where stinky, scarred, scorned citizens

Attacked you, insouciant about your royalty?

Oh poor woebegone pearl!

Such is the plight of a victim of inhumanity

A jewel reduced to mere rubbish in the hands of

The boorish!
