Enchanted Potion

As she sat with her coffee
she began to dream.
Of a home in the country,
alongside a stream.
Where the wildlife is plenty,
and the sunshine beams.
This home has a certain
enchanted theme.

She has made a start
to accomplish her plan.
But she has to be patient,
its a long drawn out scam.
It will come to fruition 
by the end of Jan.
By this time she will have
poisoned her man.

Well now it's September
she's a wealthy young lass.
A blissful young widow
with lovers amass.
She spends time in her cottage
among the wild growing grass.
And has noone around her
who'll abuse and harass.

But she now feels deflated
as she looks at the stars.
Recalling her beautiful home,
jewells and cars.
Alas, these have now
become just her memoirs.
Though she lived her dream,
she is now behind bars.
