Hanged.

Let’s guess a word.
Some call it a game,
Some call it by name.
Some recognise it by face,
Some embrace it as fate.

Others denounce it as a sham,
Many would suffer from shame (as a consequence).
For as much happiness lies ahead,
As much sorrow awaits.

The hangman’s noose alaid,
The partner pulls it in haste.
The hangman’s body a waste,
His heart then set ablaze.

Can someone guess this game,
and what on earth is its name?
