Evilest of Evil Stepmothers

Evilest of Evil Stepmothers

A Poem by The Tea Party Mouse.

Another poem written for school about Mary Tudor. This time it is from her perspective, having to deal with Anne Boleyn as a stepmother.


Beguiling smile, dainty neck

And eyes black like pitch

Thou art an opportunistic vulture

Swooping in like a fairy-tale witch


Driving a wedge between the King

And my mother, now once a Queen


I see my father won’t acknowledge me

You are poisoning his mind

He used to be nothing short of loving 

I recall he used to be kind


Now a b*****d, I have no father

Worse still, I cannot see my mother


A shrieking brat takes my place

Beady black eyes, just like yours

No more title, I am only called Lady

Elizabeth’s nanny; I do the chores


Till’ one day, my mother grows cold

The sickness creeps in and takes its hold


Hurrying and scurrying to her room

The true Queen just barely dead

I am crying, paying my last respects

You, you are stealing her jewels instead


Wait. Leave her cross, please

Whatever would you want it for

Oh, because you love to hate me

But I’ll always hate you more


Mary Tudor, Princess

The Tea Party Mouse.
Silly and fairy-taleish, I know. I was going for a "teen angst" feel.
