Helen and the Man

by Garret Broda


A sudden blow; the young arms rush to fold

The staggering girl, her thighs held firm

By the rough hands, her nape caught in his hold,

He pins her down to muffle the squirm.


Can those petrified vague shamed fingers

Resist the implacable glory in her thighs?

No one is past the pain that lingers,

When deaf ears and lame wills ignore the cries.


A shudder in his future threatens a virtue

The broken cage, the tilting scales and sword

And Lady Justice dead.

Being so forgotten,

So unlucky to witness the death of what’s true,

Did she receive penitence or good word

Before being left by a mass so rotten?
