Weekend Wordsmith - I protest

'I protest,' she said,

'You accuse me unjustly -

I did you no wrong.'



He would not listen,

His heart was engaged elsewhere -

He wanted her gone.



She wept and pleaded -

He scorned her and turned away.

Her fate was thus sealed.



He showed her mercy

And allowed her a French sword

To strike off her head.



So Henry moved on -

His Jane bore him Prince Edward.

Anne was forgotten.
