Helen Of Troy


She asked if I would write a poem about her
She wants to know if she's my Helen of Troy
It's true, the holes I'm finding in my boat
are causing quite a stir
Said she, I ought employ
a full time water boy

Doesn't she know I'm not a broken horse
Nor, her backside
I shan't bend low to kiss
with short shrift she runs the course
bold and swift upon her horse
But, what a pity
dearest Helen
won't loosen up the bit

Is she aware how first I'd have to die
before she then may write my elegy
The horse
the boat
the boy
all yours
high time I said goodbye
Lest Helen's magic bend my other knee

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
