Carnation.

 Bring me a carnation 
and tell me this,
"You're an incarnation
of the one above
and if not, 
then definitely an angel
 fallen
sent with a dove."

Help me feel pretty,
help me feel nice.
Just that one carnation,
will more than suffice.

So please get me a carnation
a white would do well,
and stand in front of me 
and send me to hell.

For according to you
I'm an angel fallen,
from a land that's swell
but that's not true -

I come from a cell,
from the land above,
I was a prisoner,
and so was the dove.

So tell me,
and tell me the truth
do you still want to give me that carnation
or is it a point of moot?
