Fall of Troy
Learnt from Chapman's Homer,
A story full of grace and glamour.
Killings of Royals, warriors and multitude
Fall of Troy is
A melodrama of ancient attitude
Sans merci, sans certitude
War that was waged in heavens
Amongst deities of love, wedding and wisdom,
To be crowned one
The fairest of heavenly kingdom.
Poor Paris from Trojan race
Chose to settle that celestial FACE.
Ah! This sin of Prince was un-forgiven,
Brought thousands ships towards Trojan haven.
The wall of Troy
Besieged by savage and sages
For term of ten years ages.
Prince Hector the decent, daredevil
Embraced Achilles` wrath and kissed the peril.
Days and nights, round the clock
Trojans and Achaeans clashed like a giant rocks
Hector, Aeneas, Paris, Agenor and Sarpedon,
Achilles, Odysseus, Ajax, Patroclus and Agamemnon.
For worthless love and fairy
Troy lost her grace and glory
