"I'll die before the morn," she said,
while lifting goblet high.
"I've lived too long, soon I'll be dead,"
and wryly smiled goodbye.

"So sip your ale, but save your grief,
of which there's not any.
It appears my passing's a relief,
a view shared by many.

I'd rather die by my own hand,
than hang by gallows' noose.
Hysteria judged I be damned,
God knows that's their excuse."

She touched the poison to her lips,
then swallowed bitter dregs.
"I'll fly to higher realms," she quipped,
and sagged on weakened legs.
