The Executioners Call

Posted on Mar 24, 2014


Executioner's Block and Axe

Picture courtesy of

And the drum beats still as
I walk to the unknown

Will the Executioner be swift?
or will he strike home?

I have no idea as to
who is to atone?

As the crowds bay
for blood and others groan

Awaiting the moment
when the axe strikes home

And heads will roll
as the innocent will fall

Always they wait for
the Executioners call…
