Strange Writing

Trial by Baptism

They pushed me out
hands tied
in the deep water

If I float I’m a witch
and they’ll pull me out
dry me off in a bonfire

If I sink I’m a heretic
and they’ll pull me out
hide me in an unmarked grave

But I’ve got mermaid lungs
and tricks up my sleeve
fiery vengeance in my heart
