Betrayed Bride: A Political Poem
Divine were his promises before wedding
to carry bride on arms to that dreamful bed
but the first night turned cold for thin bedding
and that set whole tone to the marriage ahead.
Some were predicting misbehavior of groom
but love was as always unconditionally blind
now leaving the bride feel lonely in the room
cheated by such fate and betrayed of a kind.
He turned to gambling while counting on trump
hidden up his sleeve for every friendly game
then co-playing buddies were easy to dump
with no worry of proverbial "spades dame".
Bitter is a friend stabbed in the back
after friendly games now turned sour
his relentless acting like high on crack
thirsty for prestige, hungry for his power.
Will she divorce him, or give him another chance
no one could tell, although that is what it seems
but maybe on his own he snaps out of trance
to finally give her the taste of her old dreams.
