Saw the maid
While on parade,
He determined she
A timid wife would be.
In palace they were wed
And proceeded to royal bed.
There brutality revealed that he
Had neither conscience nor morality.
His depraved abusiveness did not abate,
So twenty years of misery became her fate.
Pretending to obey, she slyly managed to hide
Her inner deep revulsion till the hated despot died
Quite suddenly from cyanide amid her silent laughter.
So the new widow reigned as queen happily forever after.
