History made easy and fun with just a few words


 Helen of Troy

Haiku

conquest or conqueror

essence of woman immortalized

pay the price of war.

 

Haikabu   (my own style)

For Helen of Troy a tragic price

Paris must pay now with his life

Messed around with an-other's wife

That's what started all the strife

Achilles fought Hector with such zeal

Till the sword that killed; struck his heel------

Truth and myth are blended together

telling a story for men to remember------

Paris should have looked away

when he gazed at Helen that day

 

Haikaboo    (again my style)

should have stayed home tis said

but Helen

ended in his bed

Paris loved her more than life

it got him into awful strife

A wooden horse, years of war

bloody battles lots of gore

The moral girls is keep away

when the little boys go out to play
