1300’s a castle did dwell
Where the mighty fortress of stone did swell
It was built to counter attacks of mankind
but the story of a woman lingers in mind
She was,
Bricked in the wall
One without glory
with no quill of blood to write her story
Étant Donnés with no hole to spy
Where she walked into the wall to die
She refused to marry
Custom, on the contrary
Procedures that thumped lead pillows of power
Sealed into a hollow no story towerm
And here is the end of a quotient
Powder white walls cover the tale of this mute docent
So let us think of this lesson through camera obscura
and peek into history’s chamber of impenetrable dura
Art in the age of digital cover
Somehow escapes eye’s house asunder
