Artemesia's brush stroke,
told stories beyond the pages of any book.
The emotions caged in her heart,
the words which caused her to choke,
scream out with every stream of blood.
In Judith slaying Holofernes,
she conquers her own demons,
and brings the patriarchy to its knees.
The women remain calm,
swallowing any feelings of guilt or grief,
they're gifting the undertaker a new body to embalm.
Artemisia was tried in court against malignant men,
she was tortured for her truths and pained in hopes she would lie,
she'd keep her story just they same only for them to begin again.
Judith got her revenge and oh it tasted sweet...
Artemisia painted women scorned & loathed in holy books,
yet never truly got to make that sugary revenge her treat.
