The Legend of Troy

Ekta Sachdeva posted under Poetry



History’s the witness to the treacherous game War between the Greeks and Trojans of hollow fame A face that launched a thousand ships Fuelled a decade-long hardships That was a matter of romantic naivete. Greek Princes vowed their glory should not fade So, they, besieged, volleyed and wild charge made A hollow horse carrying Greek soldiers wheeled inside Gift or a jinx, Trojans were unable to decide Was annihilation descending? Horses fell, heroes fell and soon Troy into dust Women, children and noble men smeared in earth’s crust What a waste of land of Olympian Gods! A chilling tale of debauchery and frauds A mere romance brought peril over Troy.   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
