The king, he ruled, with an iron fist,
nothing got past him, there was not one thing that he missed.
A law was passed that all the women in the land were his,
created for his pleasure, they must remain unblemished.
But one feisty young lady, with a mind that was all her own,
challenged this law and the king she wished to disown.
Undeterred she took up a sword and headed for the palace,
intent on causing the king misery and much malice.
Happiness could be seen in her smile as she swung the sword at the king,
off came his head, much joy to her it did bring.
The king was dead and so the law was abolished,
a perfect day for the feisty heroine for what she had accomplished.
