Charmed


Beads thread along a dainty rope;

perfection for a virgin wife,

mere twist of wrist induces choke.


A bridal chest bereft of hope;

misgivings and mistrust are rife.

Beads thread along a dainty rope


placed carefully around the throat,

a fastened clasp a touch too tight,

mere twist of wrist induces choke.


Each compliment a back-hand stroke,

a bitter bourgeoisie sound bite.

Beads thread along a dainty rope


will counterpane this bed bespoke,

lip-synching to a half-lived life,

mere twist of wrist induces choke.


This matrimonial sick joke

awaiting juggernaut jack-knife.

Beads thread along a dainty rope,
mere twist of wrist induces choke.
