Daily Prompt: Un-masked

With a perpetual smile on her face, she might

Fool you into believing that everything is all right.

But if you were to look closely at what lay beneath,

You’d notice the cracked lips and the yellowed teeth.

It might not come as so much of a surprise

To find out all that happiness was just a disguise

For concealing a heart hollow and callous

And a shallow mind filled to the brim with malice.

Don’t be taken in by her completely artificial grin

That calculates your worth as fast as her eyes can take in

The number of chains around your neck,

Your bangles, your earrings…oh what the heck!

Let it suffice to explain, though she might blush with shame

“Greed” and “Avarice” are just her middle name.

Prompt:  Artificial
