Call to the Hunt


such. little. men.

a woman unfettered by writ
pressing her down
crushing 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
Deny or confess!

held women down
drowned lungs with water
Witch save yourself!

set fire at feet
listened to screams
words seared
into throats

life was the price
for the mistake
of wanting
her own

still now
little men
little changed
their skill at killing
women having
their own
