Robin Hood

Five years away from the place you call home

Off fighting in the Holy Land, loyal to  your King

You arrive back, hands grazing the beige wheat dancing the wind

Upon your return, you expect everything to be the same

The way it was before you left for The Crusades

The place you once called home

Is no longer home

People are poorer

Taxes are higher

People are scared

You seek justice for the innocents

You become an outlaw 

A hero of the people

The man with a bow and arrows

    HI KATIE ~ Thanks for sharing ! LORD LOXLY ~ ROBIN HOOD is a great favourite of mine ~ love all the FILMS. I (BRIAN) used to live near Nottingham and there are many statues etc and of course Sherwood Forrest where He & His Merry Men operated ~ Robbing the Rich to give back to the Poor ! A great ARCHER and a great MAN ~ AMEN In the end he was restored to His Title & Lands and He married Maid Marion and they lived happily ever after !

    Blessings & Peace & Joy
    Yours BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
