oh my word

She

Gave us

Everything

When she performed

She turned many heads

A treat for eyes and ears

The motion in her ocean

Validated the existence

Of people’s prurient interests

And of course, got her thrown in jail as well

  9. Sounds like a lot of women over the millenia. There’s always some puritan prude that decrees she is a witch or satan’s spawn, just for being beautiful and a great entertainer.
