Footstool

"Once upon a time I was a footstool
and supported the weight of my master's feet.

Once I was a mule-cow
who laboured in the heat.

Once I gave birth to you in a stolen forest den,
and once I strangled you in your crib, and you did not cry again.

Once I burned & hungered
and gnawed myself in fire.

Once I saved your daughter's life
and expired on the pyre.

Once it was
Once it will be again;
Oh to say, only once more!"
