A Story Poem for Monday

Ruins of a castle, 
the ghosts of times long past 

They'll haunt you going in 
their ancestors will growl 

And it'll be sad there 
You'll wish you hadn't gone 

I was in there one time  
sickened by what I found 

Mummified in his chair 
Uncle Nick bound in chains 
Jailed man picture: Nicolas Fouquet and replica prison cell in the
Vaux-le-Vicomte Castle cellar.  (click on picture to enlarge) 
My photo, 2009.  Read about it,

Now THAT would be a slow and tortured death. Even more horrible to know it really happened. Some humans can be so barbaric, and it seems we havent evolved much.

What a terrible end... I wonder if there is any rest for such a soul.

Yikes! This is incredibly dark and well written, Jim.

Curiously I went to Vaux-le-Vicomte castle over sixty years ago and Nick wasn't on show there then! He must have voted against the EU.

Very eerie tale, Jim. Love the ending.
