'Elena' (Twice Raped)

Born 1830 "Elena De Magdalena" in Mexico

Was kidnapped by Comanches at age nine or ten

At 13 she married a war chief named Ebi Pui

She was seen by Comanchero traders now n' then




At age 18 Elena was rescued by Mexican soldiers

Who had surprised her captors one early morn

She was taken back to her Mexican family

Where she was met with disdain n' with scorn




"Why did you not fight them or kill yourself"

Elena's grandfather said in a loud cry


She answered;


"Grandfather sometimes it takes,

More courage to live than to die"
