The Legend of Troy

The Legend of Troy

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.
