Favorite Quote:
"It is better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees." - Emiliano Zapata


The voice of the King booms.
Wrathful shouts
Spat from his mouth,
Proclaim a hero's Doom.
The people were taxed beyond their wages.
Until one man
With sword in hand
Stood tall in a moment for the ages
He refused to pay the wicked king
On pain of Death
And with his final breath
He tells the Executioner to swing.
