Bosworth Field

P1180422.JPG

A gentle breeze billows the green barley
Sending waves shimmering from hedge to hedge
Elder and Herb Robert sparkle the field edge
Above the oak leaves do not stir

Near here a crown once hung on a thorn bush
Men struggled for cause, battle cries rang out
A King died alone fighting amid the foe
Violated in death, lost
Naked and broken the victors took him to town for display
Traitor they called him, an anointed King of England
Hunchback, wicked, perfidious
Name calling by the new regime
Murderer of children they whispered into the stream of history

A gentle breeze billows the green barley
Above the oak leaves do not stir

One thought on “Bosworth Field

  1. A great expression of what happened to Richard III.
    WordPress marked your comment on “Seachange” as “Spam” ! I barely had time to read it. However I do agree we do have the “us and them” situation in Trump’ behaviour.
