Ares, God of War

I’ve still been hard at work writing my poems. Here’s one of the latest.Greek mythology based again.

 

Ares, God of War

I wallow in the savagery
of dismemberment and gore
and luxuriate in bloodshed,
for I’m Ares, God of war!

 

 

With my mighty sword and shield
I charge headlong into battle,
leading enemies to slaughter
 like they’re sacrificial cattle.

 

They call me king of carnage
since I bask in butchery,
indulge in massive mayhem
and extreme atrocities.

 

 

Yes, warfare is my passion,
of that there’s little doubt,
but the sight of my own ichor*
is enough to freak me out!

 

*ichor is the blood of the gods!
