Fingering the Dame

Despise not the hurting,
The halt or the lame,
Fortune's disconcerting,
Beware of this name.
Fickle and capricious
Thievery's her game,
To make us contentious
Undermining our claim,
For good health, today's wealth!
A subversion in shame,
What she purloins with stealth
Fading hopes doth defame.

--H. Arlequin
