Helen Of Troy - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

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
Is she not aware 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

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