day 99/366

Calphurnia, the wife
Brutal in her words
To each man she bid "Good night"
To quench a sultry thirst.

Inconceivable in her day,
She wore the lace so red.
Around her breast it sat,
A magnet to her bed.

The day her man found out,
The gallows awaited her.
Before paying for her petty crimes,
She poisoned the little cur.
