Mag. 150, 1/6/13. Supernatural

                                                                                  image by Daniel Murtagh

                   "Lock her up!' The people shouted long and loudly.

            So we did.

          " Make her pay with time-" The Jury said

            And so we did.

           "What has she done ?" The children asked 

            when they saw her passing.

           "She threatens your innocence!" Mothers shook their fists.

           "She is a dark and evil force!" Wives nodded to one another.

           "Her beauty is selfishness incarnate!" The priests proclaimed.

            And thus her fate was sealed.

This reminded me of an old TV ad that said: Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. I guess that attitude never ends.
