She claimed to have seen god

born during the hundred year war

I had nothing left to lose

Sent the poor peasant girl to war

She was only seventeen

That day she marched out and didn’t come back

until the next week.

The army marched behind her

triumphant and proud

they had won

However the second time I sent her out

she didn’t return
