Writing Prompt Friday (Mercy)

The writing prompt today is mercy.

Mercy Please

The man he kneels before all to see

Knowing what will be

Begging and pleading for his life to spare

Does anyone that sees care?

Anguish upon his face as he knows his fate

In the crowd much hate

The executioner raises his ax above his head

The look in the man’s face full of dread

One last plea of mercy does escape his lips

But too late as the axe does slip
