Beware the beauty of her painted smile

She may be lovely

But beneath the sweet words

Are certain subtlteys

The taste of iron on her tongue

The animal sheen in her eyes

The teeth just a touch too sharp

Beware the beauty of her painted smile

Else you come to see first had

How the Devourer earned her name
