Verse:

Fm
With quill and silver knife
                    Bbm
She carved a poison pen
                      Fm
Wrote to her lover's wife:
C                              Fm
"Your husband's seed has fed my flesh".

As if a leper's face
That tainted letter graced
The wife with choke-stone throat
Ran to the day with tear-blind eyes.

interlude:

Fm.......G#m..Bbm

variations on Fm

Verse:

Impaled on nails of ice
And raked with emerald fire
The wife with soul of snow
With steady hands begins to write:

"I'm still, I need no life
To serve on boys and men
What's mine was yours is dead
I take my leave of mortal flesh"
