Sweetie: A Poem


Sinless Sweetie sells self
Sweetie sells cyborg sex

Sweetie seduces schoolgirl sexy
Sweetie submits sugar self

Circle swoop score Sweetie
Spread Sweetie, savor Sweetie

Soft Sweetie, siren Sweetie
Spank Sweetie, sully Sweetie

Slit slanty slyph Sweetie
Sweetie’s starving, save Sweetie

Simply sumptuous, Sweetie sins
Sweetie satisfies, Sweetie serves
