The prettiest girl with no eyebrows
Stares from across the room,
Still as a picture.
Thin lips painted in a coy smile and
Pressed tight over a secret.
Her beckoning eyes draw me forward
To touch her elegant frame, but…
Your French bodyguards got in the way.
You know I would've taken you home.

I'm too fond of puns, though I hope readers can understand the subject of this poem. :)
