Dejah Thoris by Holli Hottwatt

Your earth champion has vanished
only he knows where
he’s left you all alone
to defend your throne
and fend off
all potential suitors and threats
but fear not, red queen,
your man will come back
like Odysseus to his Penelope
and Leopold Bloom
to his beloved Molly.
John Carter will return
and when he does
all of Barsoom will rejoice
in your reunion.
Never again, o queen of Mars
will you be denied
of love eternal.
