Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.
A catchy doggerel (verse or words that are badly written or expressed), and certainly not your average nursery rhyme, but completely inaccurate. Lizzie Borden, the main suspect in the August 4, 1892 murders of her Step-mother Abby Borden (who received 19 hits), and her Father, Andrew Borden (struck 11 times), was acquitted. If you really want to get nit-picky, it was a hatchet, not an axe.
Our 40 Wax is 100% soy, cotton-wicked, Reiki Blessed and infused with Dragon's Blood, Black Currant, Pear, Absinthe and extremely dark history. 40 Wax is crowned with Amethyst, Bloodstone, Garnet & Clear Quartz to enhance the mystery behind it all.
NOTE: BLOOD and Axe NOT INCLUDED :-)
