Thread Name: Why Is the Lady of Carlisle Speechless?
Subject: RE: Why Is the Lady of Carlisle Speechless?
I wrote a final verse because I couldn't stand the syrupy Victoria romanticicism:

The captain laughed and pushed her from him,
Saying "No fair lady, that shall never be;
You're a vain and foolish woman,
I am going back to sea!"
