The Battle of Hastings - Part Three

...William's horse is shot,
And keels over on the spot:
It is thought the Duke can't possibly survive.

King Harold
His helmet he removes,
And to all and sundry proves
He isn't dead, but very much alive.

In the riot that ensues,
Someone has to lose.
The victims now are falling thick and fast.
Then Harold is to die,
From an arrow in the eye,
And William gets his victory at long last.

He marched to London then
With his trusty band of men.
In the capital, they met with strong resistance.
For some nobles had stayed true
To the king that they once knew,
But William wore them down with his persistance.....
