A Marie Antoinette poem- definitely Halloween type

From the Page Six gossip column in the NY Daily News

"IN the mail yesterday, we received a little box with the image of a guillotine on the cover.
Inside were two pictures of Marie Antoinette - one with head, the other without - plus a little poem by Laren Stover, the brilliant author of "The Bombshell Manuel of Style" and "Bohemian Manifesto."
"A Minuet with Antoinette,"
it goes, in part:
"I've lost my diamond necklace
And 600 pairs of shoes
I've lost a thousand orange trees
And beguiling garden views . . .
I've lost my hall of mirrors
And its crystalline reflection
I've lost my Swedish diplomat
Who swore to me protection
I've lost my husband and my king
Who shared my marriage bed
It's Halloween, I'd like to scream
But it seems I've lost my -." "
