Plastic Diamonds

I shook my wallet
It coughed out just a penny
I shook my breasts
Drops of milk not so many

But my heart thumped and banged
Like the mother of bloody oceans
My head ticked and sang
Like she controlled life's symphonies

So while my masters fell on sickening swords
I danced and twirled to secret chords
For my life, void of silver and gold
Outshone vanities with a glow yet untold.
