Bedizen – Verb

“To dress or adorn in a showy, gaudy, or tasteless manner.”

The prince

Was nothing more

Then a waste of space.

Arete had no time

For men such as this.

He was handsome,

Yes,

But lacked a certain

Je ne sais quoi.

She watched him,

Lip turned up

And nose wrinkled,

As he was fitted

In a bedizen manner

With a golden

Breastplate;

Not for war,

No

Too pretty for that,

But for a rendering

In his likeness.
