CCC#66: Gaoler, Gaoler

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #66

Gaoler, Gaoler, with your ring of keys
Gaoler, Gaoler, with your scorn of thieves
Gaoler, with that greed in your eyes
Gaoler, with your slippery lies
Gaoler, with your hand held out
thinking from me that you’ll get aught
Gaoler, Gaoler, ditch your hopes
The Crown peels your pay
Not the prisoners you take for dopes

    I loved the lore of the old gaol myself on this. You did a great job of berating the gaoler in this. And he probably deserved it!

    Gaolers were not the best of folk, were they?
