Femme Fatale

Femme Fatales have been with us forever. Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Nelson’s Lady Hamilton, Kennedy’s Judith Exner, to name but a few. What is it about certain women that can turn a powerful man to jelly just by a look, a glance, a smile?



Who is she, this woman

Whose eyes and dark locks

Can seize a man’s senses

With passion that mocks

The nature of reason

Of good common sense

With fantasy’s flaming

Scenes in present tense

They say that she knows not

Her fatal effects

She smiles for she knows

That it’s all in her sex

A smile at a man

A quick certain glance

Will make him a child

Who longs for the dance
