The Alderman's Noose

Curse, curse, the alderman's noose!
Curse, curse, hell let loose!
 
To the gallows I did walk
In the crowd death did stalk
 
Curse, curse, the alderman's noose!
Curse, curse, hell let loose!
 
In a moment, a short drop
In a moment, a swift stop  
 
Curse, curse, the alderman's noose!
Curse, curse, hell let loose!
 
The rope tightens around my neck  
On my flesh the crows did peck
 
Haunt, haunt, the alderman's thought!
Hell, hell, I hath brought!

Author's Note
I wanted write a kind of nursery rhyme. A dark nursery rhyme. If it gets stuck in your head then I did my job.
