Symbol of love... symbol of beauty...
Why are you so thorny, so nasty?
I admire and I praise your sincerity
The way you show us all your cruelty.
I prefer you to the lovely flower
That kills with a poisonous kiss
Or to that heavily perfumed one
That kills with its fragrant breath.
But if you ask me... my thorny beauty
Let an ordinary thorn to show perversity.
