throughout the inundation
she managed to keep it all together
others did not fare so well
across the night sky
the clouds angrily fluttered on
cried their rage upon the land
after many nights of rain
forty it was believed to be
the beasts began to venture out
discovering her upon the ark
in a rage they tore apart
her heart devoured by rib of man

I thought that love shone from your eyes
until the day I saw through the looking glass
glimpsed the backwards brain inside
realised that narcissism knows no bounds
you’d be gazing in still waters forever

On the way to the Police Station Maria cursed her stupidity in not digging the grave that little bit deeper.
