King's Justice at Montfauçonbygreenmountaineer©
The hangmen dug up charnel sin
Beneath Gibet de Montfauçon
Such that, so read the king's decree,
Monsieur Olivier le Daim,
Who hanged for half the lords of France,
Might rest in peace at St. Laurent.
Perhaps the dogs had dug him up
Or so they thought until they saw
Instead a hunchback skeleton
Embracing what was left of her,
And at once those grave men knew
Why bells no longer rang in Paris.
