Athene Athene

by

Brandon Carter

What wisdom is avarice,
The Whip of War?
You who young men worship in their lore.
While held from them thy pallas kiss
Entreating them with false Parthenos bliss.
To victory they march in flaunting corps.
Unriveled creaures, beasts of yours
In thralldom held, unknowing of the ultimate abyss.

To thee the battle is an art,
And they pawns of the game.
Fighting for favor in thy heart.
Hoping to gain that moment of fame.
Little they know your love as a dart,
Never in time to be tamed.
