Even when you have a sense of humor
they can cut your head off
because a king
decided to do his own thing
and he sat upon religion
in the most barbaric way.
But of course he also wanted
the acceptance of the intellectual as well.
However he had both an opinion
and a will.
Therefore, even though he abandoned
his position because he didn’t want to
accept the schism,
they’ve imprisoned him
and they’ve beheaded him
because they’ve assumed
that he was a traitor.
But Thomas More (1478-1536)
was merely a victim of barbarism.
That’s why we didn’t forget him.
