Man of Blood

Execution King Charles I

They called King Charles the First, the ‘Man of Blood’
Because he cared naught for all those who died
Supporting his own royalist cause, who stood
To prop up ‘right of kings’ by Charles’ side.
But is this label on Charles really fair –
When modern people never give a damn
How many die today, nor do they care
What happens to another fellow-man
So long as they their pleasures can enjoy
And satisfy their will in everything?
They’re just like Charles! Like him they would employ
The same amoral methods. Each a king
They’d rule a little world to to serve their will
And if they could – another’s blood they’d spill.
