Bare Back Rider

Lady Godiva
Maiden Fair
Rode through Coventry
All butt bare.

About the Poem

The story of Lady Godiva is quite interesting. She was protesting about unfair taxes that had been imposed by her husband on local people and she used a most unusual form of protest which would really embarrass him and make him change his mind.
