Shunned

by Milly Hayward   Jun 10, 2019


Mistress Jane
full of determination
made attempts
at some articulation
her aim was true
in her application
for a husbandly
assassination

She found the top man
high in his station
explained her need
for annihilation
decided death
by asphyxiation
would be better than
brutalization

Boldly she gave
her authorisation
for murder in her
accommodation
pushed to the end edge
of desperation
due to her husbands
adulteration

With no hope of
reconciliation
A broken heart
full of condemnation
no more will she
bear this aggravation
soon now she'll have cause
for celebration

Suddenly there are
now complications
something wrong with
the communications
seemed twas down to her
annunciation
now instead they've
paid him compensation

    This is more like it, Milly.
    I love the rhyme and the dark sad twist at the end which felled me. X

    Fabulous piece with a rhyming scheme that's extremely difficult to do but you pulled it off well, as always :)
