The Plague by demonrobber The Plague by demonrobber
The plague claimed many victims. Even those who survived still had nightmares that haunted them until they died.

The artwork is called Steampunk Plague Doctor by Cthulhu-great.
Here is a link to the artwork:

I am really grateful to Cthulhu-great for giving me permission to use her artwork. The poem is based on an idea by Inkywincy. Thanks to both. I hope you enjoy the finished product.

The same thing happened during the Plague of Lyon in 1628-1629. Robbers took their chance to pillage the houses of the dead. It enraged the community so much that they killed dozens of them, mostly after a rumour that they were protestants. Some were also hung by the authorities.

Thanks for the info. Even with death some people will still show disrespect to others and rob their bodies or grave. Hopefully they will suffer eternal damnation.

Actually, for the Lyon Plague, I'm writing an assingment on it. Pretty rough stuff to be truthful. I hope I wont have to live through something like that.

I think most criminals are haunted by their actions and hopefully they will pay their dues in Hell. Some may find redemption but the remainder will have nightmares for eternity.

This is a very good poem.
Also it seems like it could be made into a TV series or a movie.
