Yorkist Princes: Betrayed

King Edward IV dies
Edward V is king,
Richard acts as Regent
until boy, becomes a King.

Richard has the young princes
imprisoned in the Bloody Tower,
for Richard has aspirations
of being crowned England’s next King.

Richard questions princes heritage
and Parliament agrees,
princes declared illegitimate heirs

to the throne, no more.

Richard becomes King Richard III
the princes become no more,
murdered and hidden in the tower
by murderer; unknown.

Down-Trodden Scotland

Edward I seizes Scotland
from a land in turmoil,
with no ruling king.

Scots loose their lands
plundered by the English,
its people, slain and murdered.

Scotland’s plight is a desperate one
as we rise up, with sword in hand,
claiming, what is rightfully ours.

Scotland’s Rebels…

England ruled by Edward I
Scotland seized by the English,
from a land in turmoil
with no ruling King.

English soldiers and barons
plunder across Scottish lands,
Scotland’s way of life, gone forever
as its people are slain.

Scotland’s plight is a desperate one
as its people rise up,
with sword and spear in hand
claiming, what is rightfully theirs.

A King’s Mistress…

When King Henry ruled this land
the second of that name,
besides his Queen, he dearly loved
a mistress did he have.

No sweeter creature in this world
could King ever embrace,
with sparkling eyes, like silvery pearls
did cast so, a heavenly sight.

Rosamunde, fairest of them all
her name was so called,
to whom our Queen became
her deadly known foe.

The King in her defence
against his jealous Queen,
built a castle, to keep her safe
the likes’ of, never seen.

Built of stone and timber strong
with one hundred and fifty doors,
to hide her from his Queen…

Dunwich… Swallowed by the sea

Dunwich, an easterly coastal town
with its own story to tell,
once a thriving community
reduced to one hundred souls.

If you stand upon the shoreline
and hear the ghostly bells,
it is meant as a sailors warning
that a bad storm, is on its way.

Who would have believed that a town
could be all but destroyed,
by the mighty force of the sea
in little over two hundred years.

Once a major trading centre
brought to its knees,
by the mighty force of the sea
destroying everything in its path.

Man would be its final end
the final nail in her coffin,
sending her last, remaining church
to be swallowed up, by the sea.

English Martyr: Thomas Becket

Man of God and King
friends to the end,
became bitter enemies
as church, opposed the King.

Loyal warriors of Henry II
carried out, the King’s wishes,
to rid him of this man
one; Thomas Becket.

They killed him
this man of God,
they murdered him
upon his altar.

Penance was demanded
from King and knights,
for the life of Thomas Becket
a true martyr, to his faith.
