She Ruled

She Ruled

An uncommon village dame, she was

Blessed with abundant misery, never saw a couch

Ravaged in plentiful pennilessness that seemed a curse

But she’s a statue one would pray to touch

Like a stray star in the Milky Way

A helpless chicken among famished vultures

She ruled, crownless, until that day

When she got still and mixed with dust in that posture.

  1. Bob, what i like about this is its open endedness.You can read different meanings, the poet persons could be a miserly maiden, or a statue.

    Well done!!!

  2. I completely agree with @Opeyemi. This is open to different definitions. Very brilliant.

  3. Think she died. Like her unfortunate situation had only one inevitable end. Good one. Really liked your choice of words.
