Leaders of Men Riding Great Beasts

Leaders of men riding great beasts
Storm to the highest peak
Prisoners are dragged by them
As other Turks beg at their feet
Grand leaders of the Crusade
Have taken Constantinople
Bodies lie dead as soldiers pillage
Buildings burn as looting ensues
Thick black smoke suffocates the sky
While a city is left to ruin
