Will you spare me? Will you let me live
Or shall I prepare for execution?
Will you listen and let me explain
What had thrown me into grave confusion?
Father, I did not intend to kill
Your Most Gracious Majesty–believe me!
Magic struck my mind and broke my will.
Listen to me, Daddy… please, forgive me.
A remake of an older poem. The Daily Post prompt is punishment, and I sure hope this King proves to be merciful.
