Paris


The stars shall weep

remembering this day,

and men will

shake their fists.


I know that history

will remember my name,

and place the fault

with me alone.


They will not recall

Discord and her

golden tool, only

my pre-determined fate.


They will not recall

the three immortals

who placed Fate itself

into my closed hands.


They will only remember

my name and

the unwelcome choice

I had to make.


Let those who blame

ask themselves what

choice they would make

for the immortals.


To refuse the request

means death for you,

and the choice for

some other doomed soul.


To choose any one

means death for you,

and sends the divine

balance askew.


Let those who blame

ask themselves what

choice they would make

when damned either way.


The choice not enough,

add bribes to the mix

then watch how the

world will fall.


The Queen promises

more soldiers than I

can count and land

vast as the sea.


The Owl promises

brains and wit

to surpass any

soul I meet.


The Dove promises

the most beautiful

girl in the world

to be my bride.


The first will surely

lead to strife

and war among men,

as power always does.



The second will surely

lead to dangerous council,

and battles among men

that will become my own.


The third will surely

lead to trouble

and fighting among men,

contained within a family.


A war fought,

A battle fought,

A fight fought,

The choice is made.


May the world never again

know the evil

that came from

that impossible choice.


An impossible dispute,

An impossible outcome.

An impossible war

From an impossible choice.


The world is damned

if you choose,

The world is damned

if you refuse.


Oh how mortals suffer

When gods give a

forgettable man

an impossible choice.
