A Man For All Reasons Poem by Vidi Writes

A Man For All Reasons

Rating: 5.0

He who caused a break on religious authority
Through his draft emerged an Empire, mighty
Trusted ally of Emperor exerted singularity.

Played his role in decapitating Boleyn
Confident of king behind the slain
Earned enemies through Booty gain

An alliance of matrimony, miscalculated
Wrath of king called and got executed
En era of that man ended, without being exonerated

He, the villain, in – ‘A Man of all Seasons’
Cromwell – his death, marks his king’s treason
Bookies favourite – ‘ A Man for all Reasons’.

(For the full story of Thomus Cromwell minister of Henry VIII... pls go for Wolf Hall - Booker - 2009)
