Lady of the night!

Your body men desire
It fills them full of fire
They want so much
To feel the touch
The gifts you have for hire.

You walk the streets so dark
Your future bleak and stark
You work for bugs
To buy the drugs
That really hit the mark.

Your pimp is a drug dealer
A professional money stealer
You feel the pain
Hooked on cocaine
He is your true fate-sealer.

You passing nobody to mourn
Thirty years since you were born
You only know your punter
Who really was your hunter
But it’s you the people scorn!

    it shows the desperation of these women, who feel there's no out, at least not easily.

    Very dark and sinister, your poem is for The Lady of The Night.

    So many young women take to the streets and face the trials you describe so well in your rhyme, Roger. But shouldn't those who "hire" these women accept an equal amount of scorn? They say prostitution is the world's oldest profession, but it is also one of the saddest. Excellent poem! Love, Carolyn

    Very clever cluster of Limericks here. So much truth....like James mentioned below, it is the oldest profession in the world, and there is great supply and demand....and in the end, it is the same society that bolsters this trade, that also scorns it. Well done.
