Thomas Becket, man of God
once confidante, of the King,
transferred his allegiance to God
as church opposed the King.
The King called out in despair
will anyone rid me of this man,
knights hearing of their King’s despair
answered the call, to remove this man,
They killed him
this man of God,
they murdered him
upon his altar; to God,
Henry II and his knights
paid penance, for taking Becket’s life.
