The virtuous nun entreated the duke to pardon her brother, who was sentenced to death for killing a man in a duel. The duke agreed, but only if she gave herself to him the night before the execution.
After much soul-searching, the nun yielded.
Yet the executioner’s sword still fell…
This week I am super busy writing Oliver Colors’ biography, so I will be republishing some choice 50-word stories.

Pretty much sums up the indecency of man lol

Didn’t Led Zeppelin do a song like this?
I listen to those fellows from time to time but I have not heard them speak of such things.
There’s a song on Led Zeppelin III called “Gallows Pole” which is an update of a 17th century folk song, cataloged as Child Ballad 95. Like all Child Ballads, the gender and station of the narrator switch between versions, but the basic story is the same – the hangman demands the girl, not gold and she wakes the next morning to see her father/brother/husband swinging from the Gallows pole. Leadbelly and Bob Dylan also did versions
Thanks for that Seb. I will listen to it soon. Sounds like a good romance.
Personally, I think it’s a lot of nun-sense!
Personally, I think you should be shot. 🙂
