You are a woman, and nothing more, you hear?
Now, get back to my dinner and smile darling, smile...
from ear to ear!
Don't speak, say not a single word.
What could you have to say, what input not absurd?
Oh dear husband,
brute of the most repulsive variety.
Have you not even for a moment, considered sobriety?
You know, I could end your suffering at any time,
I am a woman capable, of the perfect crime.
Why, what heathen words you do now speak!
There is nothing you could do, you are brittle and you are weak!
I demand that your lips, they never again part,
for I, my little darling, can stop the beating of your heart!
Is that so?
Well, perhaps it is best I serve you up some dinner
after all, you are right darling, you are the winner.
Now, come hither, take a seat...
for dear husband you are in for a treat!
Just as I thought,
Now, serve me my meal, I'm a hungry man.
It's coming right up darling,
I just know you'll be a fan!
Enough of the chatter!
My patience is running thin!
Here you go my love,
enjoy it with a grin!
You treacherous whore!
I know this taste, I've had it before!
That's right dear husband,
you have met again with your old potion!
Let it kill you quietly this night,
there is no need for commotion!
Well, my pretty, I am to face the reaper alone,
and leave you to pick another to sit on my throne!
Now kiss me my darling, kiss me quick,
one last, hateful embrace...
-now feel the fatal prick!
On this night, what a terrible ending has come,
to our bleeding Juliet, and our Romeo, numb.
For you see children, no love will ever remain,
even theirs, in time, was brutally slain.
