Evening Prayer ~XXII~

Yes, yes… cheer….
brave men, all of you.

Butchered a woman
pregnant with her babe.

Cut the throat
of a mother of five. 

Slaughtered your guests
after inviting them into your home.

But….

You didn’t slaughter every one of the Starks.

No no.

That was your mistake.

You should’ve ripped them all out,
root and stem.

Leave one wolf alive,
and the sheep are never safe….

When people ask you
what happened here,
tell them:

“The North remembers.”
