She Has No Ransom Pulchritude



She has no time for gratitude
Her manner is frost-cold
She has no berth for latitude
Her character is bold

She has no useful aptitude
Her faculties are gnarled
She has no skillful magnitude
Her thought process is snarled

She has no kind beatitude
Her style is tersely curt
She has no rescue platitude
Her pleasure is to hurt

She has no ransom pulchritude
Her stagger makes heads turn
She has no modest attitude
Her caustic statements burn
