Chapter 4: Act 2
Anna returns to her quarters to find her maid (ILum) and scribe (Sagadu) having sex. She interrupts them to tell them that she was summoned to her father’s court.
She tells them that they should make love to her as she is now high priestess of Inanna and Anu.
Anna enters to find ILum and Sagadu making love.
Two lovers savagely unite
in the early part of the night.
Holding tight to dear life
a lover, a husband, a scribe.
Plunging his might
like a sharp carving knife
into his lover, the maid, his wife.
Don’t you two ever rest?!
Lusting on my desk like newlyweds.
Go to your rooms or at best, use a bed.
(Scrambling to fix their attire and stand to attention in front of their mistress)
-ILum (wickedly smiling)
Sorry my young mistress.
It was all his insistence.
She was the one…
She wanted to have fun..
She dragged me on…
Before you sniff out your life.
I’ve known ILum for a long time.
She was my maid before
she ever was your wife.
And I know for a fact
that she is always the one.
Now stop fooling around
and help me pack
before the rising Sun.
Where are we going my lady?
I sense you have much to say.
I have always been your friend
and confidant long before this day.
So tell us what we missed today.
You are right my dear ILum.
I do have much to say.
I just came from my father’s court.
And I’m honored to tell you
you are now looking at Nanna’s consort
and the High Priestess of the god Anu
(Upon hearing this surprising news ILum and Sugadu knelt in front of their Mistress)
What are you two doing?!
Rise up you fools.
I don’t need you to drool.
Even though I am the high priestess
I am first and foremost your mistress.
I need your strength not your foolishness.
I need your help where I am to stay.
I need my dearest aids to fend
my enemies and keep my friends at bay.
I need you both to stem my fear.
But most of all I need you to be near.
We are forever yours your highness.
We will do as you please.
We are servants of the high priestess.
And we will always keep you pleased.
-Anna (smiling again)
This is exactly what I want to hear
Words of wisdom and lust
not blabbering fear.
But I see my maid is still in heat
and my scribe’s little dangling spear.
And since you are still on your hands and knees
you might as well my lust appease.
So carry me to bed and shed
my clothes for I might as well
practice to cast the priestess spell.
I need my passions to quell.
is our command.
is all we wish.
(Sagadu and ILum escort their mistress on to her bed as ordered)
Eat your heart out.
Drink every last drop
from my mound
for I am in lust.
Lick what remains
of my river
until I burst
until you smell
on my mane.
Plunge into your wife.
I want to see her eyes
shine as you dive
deep into her hive.
I want to hear her
whine your name
as I dine
of my fruits
before we all
turn to dust.
For my name
I am the wife
is my game.
