My Poetry
Title: For Your Sparkling Brilliance,

For Your Sparkling Brilliance,
They formed an unholy alliance,
They revolted, rebelled, ganged up,
Bought arms,
Well armed,
Chopped arms,
Formed an unholy alliance.

For your sparkling brilliance,
They sold you,
A precious stone,
Destroyed thousands of precious innocent souls,
Leaving in their wake
Many lives at stake,
A severe stake of skulls, blood and bones.

For your sparkling brilliance,
Around those beautiful tender female fingers
Is a special glittering diamond ring.
For Your Sparkling Brilliance,
You were sent as an attachment to her ears
Glittering those smiling faces.
But your Sparkling Brilliance,
Left in its wake,
Skulls, blood and bones.

When your sparkling brilliance,
Brings joy and happiness,
Does not form a dismal alliance,
Does not ferment wars,
Is n’t a blood diamond,
Does not leave in its wake
Skulls, blood and bones.
That beautiful gem stone,
In this country where it has naturally grown,
Will be all my own,
And I shall proudly own.
