Baited With Sweet Talk - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Baited with sweet talk she thought,
Sugared and creamed...
Would smoke screen her demons.
It was obvious then as it's apparent right now...
She's quick with her lips to tell a lie
And with just the right flavor...
Can show another how!
She bathes in delusions,
So clear she does this well.
Those who know her have come to the conclusion.
She's not well...
But she is under her own fantasizing spell.
And she is nuts!
With a corrupted nuttiness one is lured to trust!
Baited with sweet talk she thought,
She is often asked to teach lessons she's been taught!
By those believing every word from her...
And every thing about her that is sought!
