A Beautiful Gem

A beautiful gem was found by the Princess
Purple and blue, it must be priceless
But when she had it appraised
She came out quite dazed
Precious, it was not
What she got
was fee


Sheer bliss
turned to horror
Our lil Princess explorer
must now obliterate the crowd
who cheer her, elated and proud
She shouted loudly and not so regal
"T'was not a gem but a scarab beetle!"
