Dedicated to all ofthe victims of themadness of theWitch Trials.

Here I stand now at Gallows Hill-
I tried, but you did not listen.
My innocence I have proven, time and again-
I tried, but you did not listen.
The priest calls out my crime-
I tried, but you did not listen.
"A witch she is, and a witch she shall die."-
I tried, but you did not listen.
Friends, I thought you, neighbors all-
I tried, but you did not listen.
The rope around my neck-
I tried, but you did not listen.
Now I step off-
Blackness...
I tried, but you did not listen.
