Grandma got run over at the horse gate!

2Ch 23:15 So they laid hands on her; and when she was come to the entering of the horse gate by the king's house, they slew her there.

Jehoram was a devil,
He and his son both were evil,

Ahaziah fared no better.
Two rotten throne stetters.

But upon their deaths, behold, a usurper by coup,
Athaliah, wife and mother of these two,

Stole the throne, to God unloyal,
But not until she slew the seed royal.

But one boy was saved,
Azariah behaved.

The priest made him king,
All the subjects did sing.

As the cheers and joy rang out,
Athaliah did shout,

Treason, treason,
What is the reason?

Then, in the midst of her gloom,
she discovered her doom.

With Jehu leading curiously,
(the one who drove well nigh furiously)

The great avenger, the zealot of God...
Ask Ahab and Jezebel 'bout when he gave them the nod

He made things right in the land,
By slaying the wicked with his hand.

Oh that many cared as he...
...did here in chapter 23
