The Sacred Kings by Ness Ayton

First appeared in "The Alternative Robin of Sherwood Zine". Grrrrr more verse break problems which detract a bit from what was intended; needs to be looked at in three lots of four line ideas - if that makes any sense.


The setting sun; the wooden cross;

The people standing round.

The Sacred King his life did give

To save all sinning men.

The setting sun; Mount Badon's field;

A father fights a son.

The Sacred King his life did give

To save all British men.

The setting sun; the jagged tor;

The rocks all steeped in blood.

The Sacred King his life did give

To save poor, hungry men.
