William Wallace

by Elvira

Drawn and quartered,
he                    saw                  his rotted
heart                                       The End
was                  not as
painful                                     as he

Once the
shock               wore                out He
could see         clearly: this
was not            as pure as
he thought.                              Those pristine
persons, as                              Joan and Theresa
far                               outdid him:

Mother                        with her leapers; and
Joan – Joan                              Marianne, herself
overcame her fear
and                  Embraced        the Flames,
Repudiating     the Charges
and                  Entering          Holy Ground
four Hundred Years                later.

It                      took                 St. Thomas
à Becket
only     two                  years.
