Romeo And Juliet As They Would Have Been

Written by: Vanesa Markovic

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.
-
Crazy witch!
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.
