Oyez, Oyez, Oyez
Lords, Ladies, Gentlefolk please take time to hear my story
of a time back in our distant past filled with glory
When ferocious pagan forces held this land in their sway
A number of tribal, warrior leaders found a way
To rid the the land called Albion of those devilish hordes.
Forming a coalition of kings with brotherly cords
Known as 'The Baptised' they fought side by side a holy
Dedicated to fight for justice and aid all the poor
they tore down the pagan edifices built on high grounds.
On an Alnwick hill the loyal band found one of those
Their great dragon banner was unfurled in the dead of
the sight of which gave the enemy an unholy fright
As the fierce wind whistled it's way through the thin hol-
it created terrors that the enemy couldn't escape
In heavenly realms Saint Michael stepped on the serpent's
whilst the dark forces below were filled with such utter
The pagan army was forced to flee in mass disarray
Leaving the confederation of kings to win the day.
They then replaced the edifice with a beacon of light
which is then known as Saint Michael's to recall the hard
God save the Queen and the Lord of this manor.
The Fall Guy
Past Times: King Arthur
The Roman officer, Cunedda wore scarlet
on the occasion that he and Coel Hen first met.
He had been sent to ensure Coel would bow the knee
and pledge his full allegiance to Rome's great glory,
for Coel Hen ruled the Gododin from Yeavering Bell
and whilst Pax Romana remained all would be well.
Coel's eldest daughter was asked her hand to yield
to Cunedda, a sign that the agreement was sealed.
From their marriage union, a son soon appeared,
destined to be a leader of men, by evil ones feared.
He was known by the title ‘Arth-Ursus’ the bear.
For the weak and defenceless he was known to care.
When later Cunedda's relatives begged him for aid
with their warriors, the two men the journey made
across to the west, they went to join in the fight
against Scotti warriors who were put to flight.
This was the start of a majestic migration
and the forging of what is now the Welsh nation.
