PERHAPS I AM A WITCH


CLAIRE 
Do the villagers really believe youíre a witch?

GEILLIE 
Aye. And perhaps they have reason to

I found myself with child, and knew soon, all would see,
And Arthur, my husband, the father couldnae be,

CLAIRE 
Why?

GEILLIE 
Because I had been adding bromide to his tea,
So you see, perhaps I Ďm a witch

Then at last weekís banquet, Arthur goes and dies,
And though everyone was shocked to me it was no surprise,

For recently, when cooking, Iíve put arsenic in his pies,
So you see, perhaps Iím a witch

Folk used to say I tried,
To turn a frog into a prince,
But the spell proved too difficult, I found,
But then I married Arthur,
And that helped to convince,
That Iíd managed it the wrong way round.

CLAIRE 
Geillie, youíre terrible. But did you really have to kill him?

GEILLIE 
Iím afraid I did

I needed his money, so I forged Arthurís hand,
Ten thousand pounds Iíve sent, for the army heíll command,

CLAIRE 
Who?

GEILLIS 
The rightful King whoíll reclaim this, my beloved land,
You see, Iím a patriot, not a witch

CLAIRE 
A Jacobite

GEILLIE 
For you see Iím a Jacobite, not a witch
