Count ‘Em

One, two,
the ax went through.
Three, four,
he wanted more.
Five, six,
no recompense.
Seven, eight,
he slays in your state.
Nine, ten,
he’s got you pinned.

      1. I think it’s more of an urban legend than truth. I’m not sure if they ever proved what happened to her family. And I’m not sure they were killed in that way. But I’d have to do some research on that. 😊
