In a chapel a man stood beside
His nervous and blushing bride
“I do till death” each to their vows replied
And soon to die, was he.
For ten minutes, as man and wife in the cell
They lived… with prison guard as well
Who loudly out the decreasing minutes did tell
When taken from the condemned the bride was to be.
And outside the gates on the street she waited
Tearful and prayerful with breath abaited
A volley of shots sounded out loud, which stated
That a widow now, was she.
