O Father Jove!Protect this burning city,
This bears thesin of your daughter,
Also of hercourage less lover, Paris.
The devilishdestructive aura,
Sacked manycities, widowed many ladies,
Orphaned many child,destroyed many love bonds,
Ceased children from mothers,disappointed many countrymen.
Yet why am Isurviving bearing this shame of,
Betraying myloyal loving husband Menalaus.
Apollo youprotected the city of troy,
Aim your silverarrows to my eyes,
That fell forthe young, Paris.
Blind me for Irenounce those eyes,
That had fallenin the trap of teenage charm,
So did Parisfell in mine?
Bring the mightiestPriams ‘s son Hector back,
Bring the GreekheroPatrocolusback ,
Restore life toDiamed; instead take my worthless shelf.
Punish greedyParis who wanted beauty,
And sacrificed two countries for it.
O Venus, howcruel you had been;
You played thegame and made me
Fall in arms ofParis;
Cupid’s naughtydarts did prick me
And I became a part of your piracy
Atermisaim your arrow ,which you use in hunting;
At the sinfulHelen , to relief me from the pains;
Hector’sinfant’s gleaming eyes makes me cry and weep;
Howling Qeen,Hecuba Mentally broken King , Priam make me regret
Above allcareless useless husband Paris made regret.
Wise Goddess Hera,if you could help me while I was in Greece,
Many would havebeen living ,
Many lives wouldhave been saved.
There comes thedead body of Paris
No tears, only hatred.
He burnt thelast; while he deserved to be burnt the first
Had heparticipated in the war ,
Where many amen risked their life,
Though late, Parisgot the punishment,
Only I am leftbehind.
Can't I jumpoff this balcony ?
Into the hungryflames,
Devouring the Trojans.
Mars ! if you’re pleased with,
The bloodshedof the war,
Please end it.
Uncle Neptune,make this land,
Break under myfeet and let me,
Sink to thedark house of hades,
Darker is the hell but not more thanmy sins.
IfLordMenalaus comes to seek me,
How will I facehim?
Destroyed hismen sacked his city,
Above all,betrayed him.
My love lost infront of his,
His true honestlove won.
Paris’s andmine was a fake one,
Based upon theouter beauty,
The fake outerbeauty.
