Achilles, A Poem.

Achilles




Achilles, dips his heels,

in Venus's pool,

cooled briefly in earnest care,


Then, off he flies,

he must as name implies,

words, jolting , un earnest,

then, unsavory guides,


If you ARE the Achilles,

Then I, Humbly, am Mercury maniifold,

whose heel is never cool,

as I my heel, feathered, divinely made,

immortal to you, earthbound fool,


I will never touch again, Achilles heel,

Accursed Achilles,

Love is never earned, but freely given,

Earthbound fools, winged immortals, what's not to love? And that last line would cause all wars to cease if we clay fools would only observe the rule.

Much love to you. Hy
