Mona Lisa's Smile - Poem by Hunter Jade East

Beautiful deception
But brilliant exception
I'll never see you cry

With no efficient witnesses protection
Dangerously murderous separation
And you're gone, in the blink of an eye

Mona Lisa's smile
Had me going for awhile
But Mona Lisa,
Oh your smile is simply just a lie
Oh, why does it have to be this way
Mona Lisa, Oh Mona Lisa

Plans for future cut in half
Oh, what I'd do to make you laugh
Ya know, it just ain't fair to me

To see you there locked up like Juliette
The mass destruction you won't forget
I was blind, but now I see

Mona Lisa's smile
Had me going for awhile
But Mona Lisa,
Oh your smile is simply just a lie
Oh, why does it have to be this way
Mona Lisa, Oh Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa,
Oh, why
Mona Lisa, don't say goodbye
Mona Lisa, say you'll stay
Mona Lisa, oh Mona Lisa's smile
Your smile

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Actually, this song was written while I was starting up trying to protest over social media about how seaworld and other aquatic shows are wrong and crule. The Mona Lisa's smile I describe in this is the smile of a dolphin and how they may always seem to smile they're not always happy as people seem to think. The phrase 'Plans for the future cut in half Oh what I'd do to make you laugh' Shows how they've been captured and taken from a happy free life and are now sad, lonely and scared. The phrase 'To see you locked up like Juliette The mass destruction you won't forget' is about how they are locked away and how when they capture the dolphins they also killed the dolphin's friends and family. It could be about a person as well, but this is how it came to be.
