The Trojan War in Three Parts

I.
The Judgment of Paris

If one rotten apple
Spoils the bunch, what
Does a golden apple do?

II.
Achilles’ Mother

She wanted
To protect her
Son too much. It
Never occurred to her
That he would need a foot to stand on.

III.
The Trojan Horse

If only that had
Forgone politeness
And looked the Gift
Horse in the mouth.

~Paula Boulton
