A Queen In Ruins - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

She is a decent woman in this corrupted World.
Who lives in filthy streets and sell love for her living.
I have visited her twice.
When I asked her to marry me she said no as she cannot give children.
Her sweet name is Marianne.
Some call her by Caroline.
Anyway she has different names for the Kings and Beggars.
