job title: executioner?

Layers of multi-storied questions as I read this story. One of them was whether or not ‘executioner’ is a formal job title, a position for which one can actually apply. Another was, where is the poem in this story? Or poems.

  1. I’m glad you’re back!
    This surprised me. I had seen a documentary a while back that showed that two people were designated to “push the button” and only one of buttons was real – so no one could be certain “who” did the killing. It must have been only in that particular state.
    I am off to London today for a little vacation – will be taking your question as a challenge :)

  2. That makes much more sense – not just for the incumbent, but for the whole system, I would think. Have fun in London!
