Ol Henri Sanson

Dennis L. Siluk

Ol Charlie-Henri Sanson
With just one swing—
With a sword could bring,
The condemned head off:
Quicker than an ax and block.

Note: The Charles Sanson family, held the title in Paris of executioner from 1688 to 1840: the official title being: ‘exeuteur des hautes oeuvres de poris,’
