Traces of the Past-2
This week back to London and
Ruins within the Tower of London.
to be a weapon of war.
These carts and boxes also from a distant era.
We have all heard of The Rack which stretches bodies.
Well the Scavenger’s Daughter crushes bodies

My contribution for
this week’s challenge
(Needs to have 2 M’s in the word

Random Ms this week.This was the style of accommodation

was having his ‘crown jewels’ well protected.
Perhaps even…boasting..a lot.
