Sep 28 1066

One army fresh
The other exhausted
One the invader
The other the harried defenders
The skilled warriors on both sides
The numbers didn't matter
The tactics didn't decide
But the exhaustion showed
And eventually the frustration belied
The Anglo-Saxon wall
And William conquered
Harold died with an arrow in his eye
And the Normans took a land
By force and arms
Albion, now Norman's England
Hastings 1066
