Catalina

by Elvira

Hija de España

Infanta

Amada por los reyes cristaños

Ustd. Era cirstano-en idomia Y fé

Queen of England

                Wife to a shoat named Henry;

                He who lusted for any woman who might give

                Him a son:           a breaker of vows

                                                A schemer of loopholds

                                                A rapier of nunneries

                                                A pompous ruler of fearful subjects

Catalina

                Loved by THE PEOPLE OF España

                                                                And England

                Pawn in a deadly game of

                                                                Politics

Catalina

                A frozen smile: she knows her place.

                                                “Mother” to an OEVIPUS, once

                                                Declared for the Church, but

                                                Given to Caesar

Catalina

                Ill used by TWO CROWNS, who played

                                A deadly game, with your royal birth

                Ending up with:

                                No plate               No dowry            Damp castels

                                And, your hija, María Tudor called

                                Bastards, daughter, Bastard

                                Heir

                                                                AND

Enrique VIII (Ocha)

                                Used religion to usurp the Pope

                                Violate monasteries

                                Reward murders for a succession

                                Married THE GREAT WHORE BOYLEN

                                                                                                (Bullun)

                                Opened door for Margraves

                                                And Princes to plunder any

                                                                                To rule secularly

Catalina-Katherin

                                Your faith

                                Your integrity

                                Your Iberian spirit was

                                                NEVER crushed

Catalina y María Tudor

                                Reyes Cristanos who hung to la Fé

                                                Dignity

                                                Truth

                                (But, also blinded by them)

                                You lived for courage and faith

You were despised by some for what you did

                For your faith y sus dios

                But ustedes dos were martyrs

                                For bogus kings of questionable

                                Royal blood

You are part of English History

                                Like it or not
