More than a concubine
A woman with ambition
Schooled in the politics of society
Understanding of the world
And how it turned
Watching the media
She found the human body
Was another territory exploited
And figured she would turn
Her own profit out of her skin
Pressed her words with the right syllables
Shifted herself into the correct light
She knew how to sell her smile
For it was the best property on the market
And it was her market
