An illustration inspired by the story of Lizzie Borden and the gals over at the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast I've been listening to a lot lately. Check 'em out they are awesome! I went a little crazy with the blood but if you've seen photos of the late Mr. & Mrs. Borden then you know this is not really an exaggeration. And here is a poem, which I recently learned was a falsehood thanks to the aforementioned podcast but is entertaining none the less.
- Lizzie Borden took an axe
- And gave her mother forty whacks.
- When she saw what she had done
- She gave her father forty-one.
