Helen


Helen: Most beautiful woman of the Greek World

Helen, born of Zeus and Leda disguised as a swan,
hatched from an egg but born into royalty.
Most desirable bride of Greece,
wife to Menelaus,
lover of the Troyan prince Paris.

Your infidelity launched a thousand ships,
cruel and terrible war.
For ten years you caused death and destruction
and all for the attentions af a hunk.
Isn't that typical?

But then when all was over,
Troy destroyed and thousands dead.
You returned to Menelaus
and lived happily ever after at Sparta.
Isn't that typical?
