The Puppeteer

Pretty doll on a string
Ribbons of blue
Strung in your hair
Take a bow

Sweet dancer
Tip and spin and curtsy
Twist on the string
Tap to the tune

Of the liar
Playing the lyre
A golden tongued devil
With dexterity

Deftly he twists you
Into knots
Twirling and spinning
Until you are caught

Sweet doll on a string
Shut out the devil
He knows not what he means
You're but a toy

A pretty play thing.
