And who was right

October thirtieth, thirteen O seven
Jacque de Molay, prays to heaven

When a clamour comes through the door
Arresting Molay’s company, one and all

These were men of the Temple mount
and in that time held papal clout

Arrested by the forces of Philip le bel
for his coffers he hoped to swell

outwitted was Philip for his sake
He put Molay to the stake

For his retracted heretics confession
Phillip held a merry procession

The fires licked up heavy, where injustice flout
Molay predicts I’ll see you before the year’s out

And so ends a man on the river Seine
events played out in legendary scene
