August 22, 1485

Parking lot skeleton
These medieval reappraisals
Five remains
Beneath city lot 20
Lain in haste,
Naked him they slew.

Thrown by the river,
Two velvet officials
Locked in unappealing blows.
32 at his death,
Barely found among descendants
Conclusively, fate and oblivion.

The cloven skull askew,
Likely Richard III.
Quiet did the pending exhumation
With evidence of scoliosis
Found, common man and damning novels,
Murderer in the priory ruins.
