This came to me after studying Taming of a Shrew in English and watching the movie (starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton???). What happens after the 'happy' ending? Although inspired by ToaS, it could apply to other situations, too.


I've played Kate to your Petruchio,
wooed with looks
and unabashed bravery.

But lately
I've noticed
you still wear those Devil's horns,

And there's nothing honest
about the way
you've cast me out.

You still lie
and I still cry
into my callused hands,

So bruised
from fighting you
all the time, everywhere.

They never told us
in the script
it would be like this.

Please review! ^_^
