The Normans came and conquered
They landed in the night
I think we could have beaten them
Till Harold lost his sight!

The Normans came and conquered
Their country wanted more
They gave us all a thrashing
And left us feeling sore!

The Normans came and conquered
We Saxons ran to Wales
In the hills we stayed and hid
Until they set their sails!

The Normans came and conquered
Just like the Romans did before
But in good time we grew quite bold
And showed them all the door!

    A very cool poem on the history of the United Kingdom. In millennia past, it was invaded many times. Today, the country stands on its own because you boldly "showed them all the door!" Historical writes are some of my favorites and you did a great job recounting these time periods. Love, Carolyn

    Haha! Great display of wit concerning the invasion of 1066. Hmmmm, a lot of bad things happened around Europe during 1066....kinda weird really. Chris.
