Dark Limerick

Circle

Circle

Executioner extraordinaire sailed to London from France

Her majesty was exposed to pomp and plenty of circumstance

Her death in public left politicians in peril, scattering like rats

Church tangled in the state’s affairs, power heading for collapse

Royal beheading, betrayal of honor, settled firmly with one glance

 

Call the servants to dress and groom the prisioner queen

Her ghostly praying is spooky, mumbled beneath this final scene

Gallows crowds fill the center courtyard to witness a royal flush

As her face is placed on the block the people respond with a hush

Followed quickly by gasping horror, then silence, cold and mean

NaPoWriMo2016

April is #NaPoWriMo, a time to write poetry.  This prompt for a limerick of a dark and scary nature took me by surprise.  I am sure it is my first limerick but will probably not be the last.
