Dear Zeus, I love your daughter even more

Now that She decided to stop the war.

Could Her tears redress every human sore

In an age when missiles can reach each shore

Whether it is far away or next door?

Every city and pristine underscore

Can be pulverised as their ashes soar

Hiding the Sun and the stars to their core

Till no mammal remains to see and roar

At a past Moon and diplomatic boar.

Dear Athena, I am afraid to pour

Any shot of ouzo to times of yore

As you advance to the drums of our gore

Finding we had already reached the floor.


Dedicated to peace and the ever uncertain future, and to Goddess Athena.
