Coronation Day ~ a Triple Haiku

Richard Two betrayed ~
The Tower receives a king ~
Lancaster takes throne


Rumor plays her game ~
yet Percy’s rebels disMADE ~
Hal fills “Hollow Crown”


fair France do beware ~
this Truth history books unfold:
blood spills at kings’ feet

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Hollow Crown plays: “Henry III” and “Henry IV parts I and II”.
