I, Mary

by Elvira

Saved              from “a Fate
WORSE                                    than Death”
the God          loved               me.

No jewels, no gold given       only the
Leap of Faith.

I, Mary Tudor
will      never betray
You, Mother;
Catholic lord
and the Fire
of Earthly Hell                        will consume me
before my Heart         turns Black:
Thus,               I’m                   called
Bloody Mary;              and Elizabeth,
Great:                                      does He
Praise  the
True Heart,                 or Iago’s

I                       know not,       until

Sinew              becomes         worm,
and,                                         the Chariot
carries             me to YOU.

May, 2013
