Mad Alice in the Snickelway

I know I've done it before, but I thought I would do it again. There is a narrow alley in York, and narrow alleys in York are called snickelways, that is called Mad Alice Lane. So named after a famous mad woman who was hanged in 1823. At first, I thought she was hanged for being mentally ill, but it is purported that she poisoned her husband. Maybe it was the murder that drove her mad? I hope so. Anyway, this is my second take on the subject with a similar composition to the first. So nice, I'll do it twice.
