Richard and the Battle of Acre

Mass Execution at Acre

Richard the Lionheart; England’s King
ruled this land with an iron fist,
as he bled the country dry,
financing his war, in the Holy Land.

This barbaric warrior, and Knights Templar
fought an unbeatable war
in the name of christianity
for his Pope and the Church.

Saladin, and the Muslim army
rose up in defence of their lands,
their way of life, threatened
by outsider’s, against their lands.

The city of Acre captured
ransom terms agreed for captives,
Saladin sealed their fate
unable to pay the ransom.

3,000 captives, lost their lives
executed, as their heads rolled,
opposing armies; helpless
the ground turned red with blood.
