Irony of beauty

This golden-winged eagle 'dances' to my hysteria
Her looks, as magnificent as a diamond
But her 'steps' are as craggy as trunk of a tree.

Though her beauty seems priceless;
the kind that can plunk you in a trance
But she is not as worthy as her looks.
She’s a grand portrait of Irony of beauty!
