Helen of Troy
HELEN OF TROYGlass/WolfeThe stage . . . the stage is set . . . the battle begins . . . and the players are playing to winThough great fighters are on each side . . . they’re unable to turn the tideOn they fight, but no winner is clear . . . on it remains for ten long yearsFor Paris intends to keep his prize . . . filling her lovely head with liesBut for the Trojans, there’s hope in sight . . . great Achilles refuses to fightThough the Greek King will make amends . . . it’s too late to save his closest friendSo the mighty Achilles takes aim . . . Hector’s in his sight againHe kills Hector with a clever ploy . . . drags his body round the walls . . . of TroyHector’s body in it’s tomb . . . oracle see Achilles’ doomEvents in motion like a wheel . . . poisoned arrow in his heel . . . in his heelBecause the Greeks can’t take Troy by force . . . they decide to use a wooden horseWith their best fighters hidden inside . . . the rest sail out with the tideThe Trojans feel their spirits lift . . . the Greeks have gone and left a giftThey wheel the horse inside the gates . . . soon they will realize their mistakeTeh Trojans celebrate with a feast . . . they’ll be hit when they expect it leastFor while they sleep, the Greeks attack . . . their army had turned and then sailed backMenelaus feels Helen is near . . . while she is hidden away in fearHe finds where she is hidden . . . she pleads with him and is forgivenThe war is over, the Greeks have won . . . dead are King Priam and Hector’s sonAchilles’ ghost appears from the grave . . . to tell his son “Try to be brave”The sacrifice of Priam’s daughter . . . will calm the once turbulent watersThe Greeks sail home, for their work is done . . . one man’s Odyssey has just begun
