Thomas Becket
Sophia, Age 10, Glenside, PA
                      When King Henry took the throne,
he threw his friend, Thomas, a bone.

He made him Archbishop of Canterbury,
And Thomas became his worst adversary.

Many tantrums King Henry did throw,
When to Henry, Thomas often said, ‘No!’

King Henry screamed, “Rid me of this saint!”
What happened next would make you faint.

Three young knights drew their swords,
And Thomas Becket was no more.

Henry’s sorrow would never mend,
at the death of his beloved friend.
