For the polygamous wife, who no longer sees
As the sister wives want her to believe.
No longer wanted to do
the wrong she was born into.
Escape from this man, and his 30 wives
running and running for her life.
The Prophet says to
"Kill! Tis God's will...
He talks to me and only me!"
Her arrangement was for polygamy
She dropped to her knees
Praying to God-" Oh Please!"
She was only Sixteen.
now she will die
for refusing to be his
* This is a sick but true story.
