for a gentler nor a more merciful prince was there never

she’s Anne of a thousand lies
the focus of a thousand male eyes
with each smile she weaves a deception
that we’re not on Earth but with her in heaven

but we’re so lucky women put up with men at all
or do they only look up at us because we’re tall?
and in my version of the beauty and the beast
in the very end, the beast is still a beast

return to poor Anne awaiting execution in the castle
on charges of high treason with evidence far too facile
so that Henry can move on and get it on with Jane
as a lesson in history, her death should not be in vain

    This started with an old college poem fragment, basically just the first stanza and the line about beauty and the beast. I still have a small stack of old poetry left, but it is getting harder and harder to find anything worth posting or worth spending the time to try to finish or revise like I did this one.
