Lady Godiva

Lady Godiva

Lady Godiva, sought to free
her people of Coventry,
from the hardship taxes
imposed by her husband.

Mount your horse naked
and ride through the town,
and I will grant your wish
releasing the people, of their taxes.

A naked Godiva, mounted her horse
veiling her body, with her hair
riding slowly through the town
her reward, a tax free Coventry.
