So Ethelred introduce Danegeld,
To save the place under attack,
The Vikings came back for more,
Soon Ethelred was given the sack!
The Vikings emerged triumphant,
They had tons in silver and gold,
Ethelred was reluctant,
"You were an unwise leader," he was told.
The Vikings went back to Dane,
It wasn't really quite the same,
They had been to Britain so many times,
They had to go back again.
