Poster: "Neal Townley (EUS)" <QUSNJT@am1.ericsson.se>

> Razo: 
> When ever the infidel would raise their force to threaten holy land or
> home hearth, 
> Niall Dolphin would write a Sirventes to roust the faithful from their
> halls and homes.
> In so doing he would make blood boil and righteous battle lust spring
> forth. He would often, like 
> the infamous Bryce de Byram, refer to famous people as the charge on their
> heraldry. Upon
> hearing of King Stephan (the dragon) mustering forces against Atlantia, he
> wrote this Sirventes:
> Attend me now Atlantia's host
> And hear God's call to arms for crusade!
> No other under heaven may boast
> Such great prowess with lance and sharp blade
> For king and kingdom we make our stand
> Our bodies shall shield our native land
> With judgement of God in each sword hand
> The devils dragon does raise his host
> To bear down upon our righteous shield
> And try his best to give lethal dose
> But he shall find how little we yield
> For now our bold king shall take the cross
> For the Eastern Moors our borders cross
> And cry Jihad to entreat our loss
> Our king shall slip the mastiff loyal
> The wild wolf shall hunt midst battle's fray
> We'll hear the roar of lion royal
> And see corbies feast by end of day
> So gird your harness without delay!
> And may each blow thrown a foeman slay
> And so place our foes in great dismay!
> Go my friend, to the bear this song bring
> And tell him I fight for God and king!
> Notes:
> Dragon = King Stephan of the East
> Corbie = Sir Corbie de la Flamme
> Bear = Anton (although this is not his charge)
> Wolf = Duke Logan
> Mastiff = Duke Cuan
> Lion = Duke Michael
> enough to fill a zoo!
