Tarnished Crown

And The Crone Beneath

Entitled, she sits upon her throne.

Crown perched upon arrogant brow,

Leering at those who speak against her.

Incited now is a rebellion that will tarnish.

Persecution, in due course, begets retribution.

Sentencing them all to death, she will rule over an

Empty kingdom full of nothing but pity and shame.
