(poems go here)She lays in wait for her next play
She does not waste her time at all
She jumps at every chance she gets
And leads a man to his down fall

She knows the rules to her own game
And knows exactly what she will say
For she’s at work she never rests
Every minute every day

There’s not a soul who’s weak or strong
Who’s run away from her strong hold
Every man who’s given in to her
Has been any age either young or old

She plays a sad role in human life
She’s been the cause of broken trust
In homes and she’s a key factor in
Causing men, young and old, to lust

She knows what she can do and sees
The shame she is able to create
Therefore she waits to see who’s next
And leads the captive to his fate
