Sorta reminded me of Salem Witch Trials I've read about in the past
Similarly, in this case people could point and say: "They are in love" and they would
most certainly be given a hornets blast. Oh they would not cut off the lovers heads
as t'was in days of yore. Then they just pointed at you and said: "She's a witch"
and then cut off their heads to keep from being a bore. Most popular was to burn them
tied to a stake so they could hear the loud fires roar. And was by far the most likely
way to do it, untill their came a day when the people saw right through it.
But then little is known about this I want to tell you to hold on to your seats. Here
is one of the worlds most cruel and remarkable feats.
40 Hornets was all it took from their most powerful venom to work
They would just net them over the heads and let them do the 40 jerk
That method did not get put down as part of mans cruel punishment as of yet
But I don't think it's on the books or against the law to hire 40 Hornets I would bet
But love conquers all it hs long ago been decided
Though love can be a Hornets nest if love is not abided
By the way, this is not a true story. So hope you don't feel the sting of it too badly
It is just a wonder that it did not happen as some other things have all so sadly
Love to all
