Chapter Ten: Parable

 Eve's Punishment

“The devil's agent, enemies of God”
screeched the misogynist judge.
“Confess your sin and rest in peace;
look me not with your evil eyes!”
“Demon back!”

“Take this woman to hang and burn,”
jeered the young guard.
“Entertainment for the holy concern –
try the thumbscrews tonight.”

Shaved, naked, dumbfounded,
The maiden was hung at dawn.
Her child's cry sliced the air by knife.
The laughed while the infant did mourn.

 Lunar Eclipse

Alas the moon should ever rise,
To show the hurt and the pain,
I hope the sun will never set,
On my true love again.

Memories of the love we shared
Just before you went,
Are still engraved in my heart,
A love that was heaven sent.

But that's all past and gone,
I have nothing for the pain,
The moon and sun will never shine,
On my true love again.
