Defeated

Written by: John Turkson

Have you ever 
experienced a back 
lashing?
By a thick, pliable whip?
It's nothing compared to 
her tongue lashing,
An egregiously scalding 
dip.

Have you ever carried 
a 
thorny crown?
With such comfort on 
your 
brow?
It's nothing compared to 
her piercing frown,
So intense it fills one's 
soul with awe.

Her fury, only Hades 
can 
compare
Yet he dares drizzle 
blood 
on her boisterous flame.
Her fate struck, she 
prowls in gloom and 
more, 
in shame.
The lamb did snatch 
victory in the tigress's 
lair!
