Susanna's Seven Husbands



Susanna's seven husbands
Died one after the other
And left Susanna dear
In a spot of bother


She didn't miss them much
Though she missed them twice over
But getting rid was better
Than being the silent spurned lover



She loved each of them
Death still sealed their fate
Killed one after the other
And satiated Susanna's hate



Labelled a succubus, a witch
Susanna's still in the mansion
Shunned by the familiar and the stranger
Wearing out life's last session




But her spirit still burns bright
For she calls society's bluff
She isn't shunned for being thought a killer
But because she's had the last laugh



P.S.-The Ruskin Bond connection is self evident.Inspired by the short story, Susanna's Seven Husbands, by Ruskin Bond, upon which the movie Saat Khoon Maaf is based.
