He spoke sweet words from between smiling lips,
And she missed his pernicious danger from the start.
No one had schooled her on what to look for
In a man with a vacancy in his dastardly heart.
He made a quip about women as easy pickings,
That it wasn’t difficult to pull the wool over their eyes.
But thankfully for her another woman came along
And warned her that he wasn’t one of the good guys.
So, teach your daughters when they are young
That everyone who smiles at you don’t mean you well.
For often the man who speaks with a velvet tongue
Has no feelings where his heart is meant to dwell.
