This is a really long one so anyone that wants to read the rest, the link is at the bottom.
"Secure the bailey, let none through these gates,
Defend thyself against the evil one that awaits.
Hot tar and aye archers be at the ready,
Hold, hold now, on my say shoot steady."
"Aim true men, in your hands you hold life;
Our people, our crops, our animals, your wives."
And a heavy ball from a catapult never quite made it over the wall,
But the impact caused the east section of brick to crack and fall.
It took four men down. Oh, what to do?
Their brave soldiers numbered only a few.
None to match the force that lay beyond the castle's keep,
Gathered in the night while the castle's occupants were asleep.
And the hot tar thrust over the side, oh what agonizing screams,
"Archers, fire, archers, fire, " oh so slowly the motion seemed.
Screams, shouts, bleeding bodies, her men were dying,
But she had to keep going. No time for crying.
The south wall had been breached, with sword in hand she fought,
Fighting for her people, remembering everything she had been taught.
"Milady, milady no you must run and hide, "And as she turned around,
Young Olrick, her knight in training fell to the ground.
So young, oh so young, as she thrust her sword through the enemies, chest
Olrick trained so hard, eventually, he could have been one of her best.,
A tear slipped her eye, but she fought the rest back,
No time to mourn now, not while they were under attack.
She felt the sting: she felt the blood spill from her right thigh,
But she fought on, even knowing she would die.
Flaming arrows lit the night and horrifying screams echoed the air,
Followed by the smell of burning flesh and scorching hair.
Over- run now the battering ram smashed through the gate,
What could she have done differently? It didn't matter. It was too late.
Surrounded, she was tightly pinned against the castle wall,
Sword to her throat and they bade her call.
"Surrender he says," She screams, "but no says I.
I will fight, no coward to be when I die"
"What say you are you with me, men?"
Silence, total silence as he rode in.
