I want to serve it back
With a wooden cricket bat
Just one great big thwack
Sends you reeling in the rain
I Paddle in your blood stain
“That’ll learn you” I feel no disdain
Bat in hand and now it is done
You are forever silenced and gone
Only vile memories of you linger on.
There is no post murder remorse
You broke me and ridiculed my flaws
No grief just justice in this final vengeful divorce.
Alison Jean Hankinson
This was an accidental poem and I suspect Lily is a distant relative of Fairground Fay. However as I searched for a suitable image of Lily….I came across the beautiful Lillian Gish. She was movie star in the silent movie era, and although she never married, she did have several love affairs, one notorious one with a director called D W Griffith. There were some who declared the relationship to be “an ongoing psychodrama” but I have no real knowledge of this matter. Anyway I feel that Lillian Gish is the perfect image for my accidental revenge poem. Both images courtesy of wikimedia.
