Forbidden Fruit

Henry VIII - Anne Boleyn

King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn

Henry tipped his crown
in Anne Boleyn’s direction,
he who was married
she who was tempted.

His desire for this woman
led to conflict with the church,
so the Church of England was born
with him at its head.

Henry and Anne were married
much to each other’s delight,
she gave Henry a daughter
not the son, he so desired.

Henry lost interest in Anne
ever looking for a replacement,
Anne plotted against Henry
committing the unthinkable act.

Anne was charged with adultery
for plotting against the king’s life,
she who was a Queen
received the maximum penalty.

Off with her head
off with her head,
came the cry
from the crowds.
