Richard I The Lionheart – King of England –

A noble king leaves his land
To go to Jerusalem
To fight in a holy crusade
With spear, shield and blade

Whilst his people are left behind
Ruled by his brother unkind
A legend will spring up whilst away
Of a Hooded Man that will live for many days

So the Lionheart enters desert lands
Shield and sword close to hand
Ready to defend his faith and beliefs
Far away from his own seas

And what he finds is blood and fear
Who won’t bend to Christ’s tear
So scimitar clashes with sword
A battle commences with an ensuing hoard

And then the dawn comes with many slain
Yet neither side will take the blame
Tail between his legs the Lion goes
Until one day he is dealt a fatal blow

Never to see his lands again
This Lion has roared his last, heaven sent
