Which Witch

a limerick

A woman’s home was made of gingerbread

on her property, and her cats were fed

No man or kids; she was free

Threatening patriarchy

She wouldn’t convert, burned alive instead

    Clever girl!

    Woah, I call shenanigans! Anyone surrounded by a clowder of cats is in no way 'free'. You're spreading false hopes here! 🙀

    Dang, weird that they didn't just let her be a spinster. If she's surviving on her own and desires to be alone as long as she's not breaking the law why would anyone want to pick one of her bones?

    Oh damn! Probably one of my ancestors. I love it.

    Yum, those toddlers were tasty. Alone in the woods in a cookie house covered with frosting and candies? I could do that! Love it

    I love the fairytale and whimsical feel this poem has! I also liked the Hansel and Gretel reference! Great work!
