Call to the Hunt

woman-1445917_640

imagine
a woman
unfettered by writ
pressing her down
strangling her spirit
taking her life

at least
the one she wanted
at most
the one she deserved

they piled rocks on witches
squeezed out words
foresworn
until last gasping breath
pressed out
denial or confession

held them down
filled lungs with water
tempting
Witch save yourself!
all innocents drown

set fire at their feet
listened to screams
words burned
in throats

always
life was the price
for the mistake of wanting
her own say

now
how little men
have changed
their skill 
at the killing
of witches having
their
own
say
