A martyr to love

by Linda Fuller

A martyr to love, she behaved
in a way altogether depraved
she burned all her knickers
made prank calls to vicars
then had her red curly hair shaved

It wasn’t one man that she craved
her libertine pennant she waved
to summon the masses
be they princes or asses
cupidity had her enslaved


Author's Note: Happy Valentine's Day

I'd say she embraces love to its fullest. Hilarious! Thanks for this.

Reminds me much of the inquisition, equally disturbing. A great write for sure, making all who read it think.

I love the way this moves, Linda. Its got grace and the rhythm is perfect and its off beat quality is divine.
