Queensnepa

Queensnepa knew how to play the game.

‘The trick,’ she said

‘Is to control both fire and ice.

If I can Melt someone’s heart,

I can get him to Freeze

Before even thinking

Of disobeying me.

Light a candle first.

I always quite calmly,

Of course,

Engage in deceit.

A mind and soul at Rest

Can always be counted upon

To do their very best work.

Open the veil

That leads to the furnace

Which leads to the icy cold grave.’
