I watched the sun set on Dewsbury Slope
Death and breath had crossed my brow
When wise men spoke and soldiers broke
The clash of swords from broken words
All spawn from hate to desecrate
This lovely field  that God had built

Legions crept as wise men wept
Priests grew old and widows moaned
Even so, the rain did blow
Through death and snow, the air grew cold
All brittle be, from words to be

Parchments new from solicitude
Great men of old who gave us hope
Bow down to God, that we may cope
So we may kill through love and hope
To spill more blood on Dewsbury Slope.

I watched a while as the air grew cold
The brittle bones and the ones who moaned
Solemn swords that knew no words
That struck the heart,cold.....inert...
All dead and buried....and long time perished

Except the ghosts and those who lorn
Ghouls that  pass are seldom vast
That moan and groan through ages past
No blade of grass, that even serpents pass....
This ill demise of Dewsbury's past
