Satirical Elegy for Anne Boleyn

Beginning with an image of her execution outfit, then conveying the rumour of her lips still praying after death. Goes onto discuss the incestual behaviour of Anne before ending on a sarcastic clause regarding her irreplaceability. (i.e. she was Henry VIII’s second wife.)

Satirical Elegy for Anne Boleyn

Dark grey gown of damask, trimmed with fur of stoat;
a mantle of ermine, a crimson petticoat.

Her lips, they trembled, as her head hit the floor.
She finally discovered what her mouth was good for.

Her sisterly love was stronger than no other,
she shared her toys, her food and her bed with her brother

A sister, a mother, a wife of good taste
Poor old Anne will never be replaced.
