Precious Creatures

Precious creatures

 All hail precious creatures 
 dazzling in the morn,
 burying jilted suitors 
 as night time turns to dawn.

  Have ye seen Messalina?     
  Oh! Beauty is the beast
  In a bath of ugly frogs,
  she bathes before her feast.

  Unto the looking glass  
  pretty maids fondly stare.
  Only truth trails the ticking clock,
  old age hides her lair.

 Adore the painted eye,  
 desire so lustrous cup.
 Beware the widow spider, 
 her potions never sup

 I’m peeling juicy peaches
 with a steely knife,
 and staring at you heathen   
 now run and save your life.
