The Trojan War In A Nutshell, Page 1 Of 3
Paris, visiting Mycenae,
Spotted Helen, the city’s queenie;
She spotted him; the sparks they flew;
Her hubby, Menelaus, never knew,
And when the Trojans put to sea,
Helen was stowed aboard with glee.
When Menelaus found out, O Boy!
He vowed to put an end to Troy.
With Agamemnon, his king and bro,
They rallied all of Greece to go
Get Helen back and sack the city;
Believe me, their anger wasn’t pretty!
One day a lookout on Troy’s walls
Looked out to sea for storms or squalls,
Seeing instead a thousand ships,
He yelled a warning from...
I'd like to die in September,
For die I eventually must,
When Connecticut's leaves, I remember,
Are beginning to turn into rust;
And Coronado's barrier island
Has battled her hurricanes all,
And our home was safe on the high land;
Yes, I'd like to go in the fall.
When the pecans are coming in season
