– mary, mary –

Mary, Mary, quite contrary…

how did your body burn?

In a world of sickening hate,

some animals just never learn.

~

You spoke up, and you paid the price;

your precious babe did too.

Minds could never comprehend

fear from your upside-down view.

~

Should I shed tears for a foreign ghost?

It would make a world of sense.

Instead, simply breathing out your story

would be time better spent.

~

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,

how do you carry on?

In a world of sickening hate,

your strength will make me strong.
