Axe - Poem by Jon Lloyd

I know you've heard some evidence -
You think you've got the facts -
But look into my eyes my love,
Before you raise that axe.

I'll never treat you wrong again,
'Twas just belligerent youth.
Dive into my eyes again -
You know I speak the truth.

Now don't be over hasty,
I've had a rotten day.
I see with my own eyes, alas,
The axe falls anyway.
