Beautiful poison

Hark it doth lurks!

On the borrowed faces of brothers and friendly foes

Fear them, that call white black and black white

These blazoned beauties, mourners they seem but their eyes are full of treachery

With sweet words deadlier than death,

They would change their state to suit your taste

Beware, for decayed roses are far pungent than rotten weeds

Though they’ve nailed life upon their dark eyes;

They will dice your death dose in cold, elegant cuts

And serve you generous chunks of honey-coated galls
Most blest with seduction this snakes,

With sobriety stamped on their sour cheeks

They will mock your mind with their stainless smiles
Starve your thirst, drink not their dark,  bloody red wines;
beautiful poisons that poison poisons
