No Murders in Chapeldown

"No murders in Chapeldown"
said the vicar grandly,
but just at that moment
there was one, in a field.

At the moment he said
"No murders", the ax came out,
and bloodied the
wet field.

It was someone the vicar knew as well -
the man who murdered...
"No murders in Chapeldown",
and the chapel rang its bell.
