Canterbury Tales

By: Nick Romine

Corruption of the church is a big part in all the Canterbury Tales stories. The characters are all on a pilgrimage that's a punishment from the church for things they may have done. This is how the story line is setup with all the characters having to tell two stories each.

Song

Take Me To Church

By: Hozier


Chorus x2:

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

Offer me that deathless death

Good God, let me give you my life
Hozier - Take Me To Church (Audio)

Poem

Remember

By: Christina Rossetti


Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future that you plann'd: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray.

Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.
