Once There Was A Husband

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

My Bedroom 10:22pm

I had a husband

He was bad

He made me angry

He made me sad

I tried to love him

Long ago

But then he saw me

With no clothes

He sees me now

In what I wear

From here to infinity

I do swear

I’ll take him down

He’s got nothing left

But my daughter

And he’s caused a rift

Between us now

And between his own

For the sake of Silver

He stole my crown
