Richard de Cetrefort

 

Richard de Cetrefort submitted only to God

Withholding what little he thought God had forgot

 

What God had forgot the Church had forespent

And neither those Kingdoms would hear him repent

 

One fired up its bundles and drove deep the Stake

The other forsook him and closed up its gate

 

The Poor of The Parish mourned his cruel death

They starved through The Winter betrayed and bereft
