I really do not know, I was reading Shakespeare and tried to write Old English style. And learning about the guillotining and such, I just wrote this down.

To the guillotine be mine head,

take my life, leave me for dead.

No longer can I live,

in misery and in vain,

finish it now so that mine heart might be slain.

Chances in life come but once around,

such as the time in you true love was found.

Bury me not here,

keep me not in thine midst

force me to the fire, 'till mine whole body doth fit.
