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

This is what the movie “Saat Khoon Maaf” is all about. The movie is based on Ruskin Bond’s novel Susanna’s Seven Husbands. Got this poem after a lot of search..hence such a late post.

Loved the movie!!!
