Nobody Cares

She lingers like an unpleasant smell
Emotional fascist in the body of a bombshell
Don’t be deceived by her kindly manner
She’ll inject her disease until it spreads like cancer
Salivating at the prospect of your demise
She lures you in with the sexiest of lies
Warning other targets of her scandalous affairs
Is met with an indifferent, "Nobody cares."
 
The demon’s well hidden in her ample frame
A friendly beauty on top of her game
It’s far too easy how she suckers them in
A bedazzled victim always brings out her grin
She initiates by teasing and gentle touch
Their permanent arousal an emotional crutch
All that remains are the scarring and tears
When you’re abandoned like refuse, nobody cares
 
Brain of a tyrant, heart like a cactus
She wasn’t born evil, it came with practice
As she narrows the distance between pleasure and pain
The screams of the innocent an enjoyable refrain
Scraping their skin with her nails of steel
Oozing fluid her nourishing meal
Sounding the alarm about her shady wares
Is countered with a disbelieving, "Nobody cares."
 
Traversing the world in search of the new
But the numbers are dwindling to a stubborn few
The less she feeds, the more she rapidly ages
Her epic story is running out of pages
Bereft of feeling and almost spent
Hard to believe she once passed for "heaven sent"
Reduced to offering unappetizing shares
Such a shame that nobody cares
