The Curse of the Grimaldis
Sandra A. Merlini
Gisele Pascal, French Actress, loved her prince.
Six years, he cast aside, a crumpled scene,
For Princess bridal veil without a wince.
A groom and woven Highness, they, serene.
To "Chapel Mercy," virgin, dressed in blue,
For TEARS OF MARY, actress dried with lace.
A gift for Princess Grace, her prop, miscue.
The Wedding day of Prince and Princess Grace.
Handkerchief linen, lace, organdy white.
A Princess wiped her blue, myopic eyes.
Like Prince, she flung the scrap of mantle's flight
of Mary's care, Gisele, her muffled cries.
Grimaldi death in car was tossed by Hand
Of God from heaven's height with sleight-of-hand!
