A profusion of crystals and gems,

Every color, and every shape,

Something she could never forsake.

Kept some locked,

In the chest,

Said no one will ever find the rest,

Said they'd have to play hide and seek,

If they wanted to find the key.

Took her doll,

Snapped her head,

Slipped a note,

In her neck.

A lady of secrets,

A thief of jewels,

Caught by pirates,

Bound to death,

Pushed to the edge,

And jumped the deck.
