A Tragedy in Athens

By Aqus   

Once upon a moonlit night,
There happened a gruesome sight,
From the city a lady young,
Stole the heart of a young man from a village far flung

Romeo Juliet, Adam and Eve,
Whose love even God couldn't cleave,
Thought the young man,
Whose name was Subtle Stan
Under the girl's sordid spell,
Stan decided to shout his heat's yell,

He ran to the cliff beside the sea,
jumped from the top he had become crazy,
None knew why Stan had jumped,
The girl did whose heart now was stumped,
She had refused his love,

She yelled and caused pain to herself,
She knew only death could be of help,
She showed her name Susan Storm,
Then she jumped to her death,
In the lands of Ezeth she wore love's wreath.
