    Poem about the Norman invasion

    With no prince sons, no daughters too, the problem with
    the whole thing
    Was who to put into that place, to be poor England’s new King [...]
    The nextmost day, for one brave soul, the rule of England beckoned
    As Godwinson, the Wessex Earl, became Harold the Second
    But Harold wasn’t all alone, in wanting to be royal
    His namesake from the Viking land was feeling quite disloyal

    Example: prince → /prɪns/
