Citizen Guillotine

from by Jennifer Reid

about

A 17th century song to the tune of the national anthem about beheading the king. People would sing songs en masse to famous nationalist tunes so that when the authorities walked past they would assume they were singing in support of the king. I can't pronounce "guillotine" by the way.
