i watched a documentary about the unearthig of R3 in a leicester car park last year. A very strange group of people called the Ricardians, whose aim is to restore R3 to a good reputation. They clearly revere royalty and dismiss Shakespeare's play as Tudor propaganda. They are eccentric but also annoying. My story is a mash up of Shakespeare's character and that event. The key message from the bard, for me, was that R3 says he was fated to be bad, on account of the horrendous treatment meted out to him on account of his deformity.
I think i wrote this in harmonic minor mode (Mr Daugrin has set me off on a path of learning music theory, for which I am eternally grateful.)
