I Fed

I Fed

 

From the roof of the Palace, saw I her

A beauty bathing in spices of oily myrrh

Wondering whom shall I send forth to enquire

Only to reveal she is the wife of Uriah

 

My eyes had seen, they had borne the need

The wife of another shall be mine to feed

What is not for me, I shall take as my own

In war orchestrating the husbands final groan

 

Despised I the cup of morality, I drank daily

Consuming lewd adultery, quenched my lust gaily

To consider the aftermath of this indecent act

Was never a thought, in this I gravely lacked

 

An ‘eye for an eye’ the words rang in my ears

The seer came to reveal what was near

As I dealt destruction, destruction dealt me

When I made a pact with death, I did not foresee

 

That the decree of life, escaped I not

All which I allotted out, I surely got

Betrayal I contracted, knowing its felony

To my front door I invited lesions of calamity
