Day 125: Helen

Of Troy and of Sparta

Your name marks the fall

Of cities and of men

All pursued your beauty

Without an ounce of shame

Husband and child were left behind

When Troy became your home

Abduction or elopement

The legends all disagree

Wars waged and battles fought

To save the Spartan Queen

Choice, you had none of

As men fought for your fate

Whilst gods gave you away

In judgements made by men.


Thank you for reading.
