The Knock

 

The night was dark
 
The wolves were howling
 
She could not sleep
 
Her stomach was growling
 
She went downstairs
 
To get some food
 
When a knock on the door
 
Changed the mood
 
What could be there
 
She did not who
 
She went to open it
 
There was nothing else to do
 
It was the court messenger
 
Who bore terrible news
 
She was under arrest for witchcraft
 
Could this be true
 
Her life flashed before her eyes
 
For death was sure to come
 
Cold sweat across her face
 
Her hands went numb
 
First a trial
 
Of lies and false accusations
 
Then came the execution
 
Of a brutal public hanging
 
Who could have said this
 
The resentful Thomas Putnam
 
Or maybe it was my husband's mistress
 
The jealous Anne Rudham
 
"I have no poppets in my house"
 
She exclaimed in fury
 
The cold reply was
 
"It's now in the hands of a jury"
 
There was no way out
 
Except to run and hide
 
The she would keep her life
 
But lose her sense of pride
