This was written for the Ludi Apollonaires in the roman antiquity organization I belong to known as Nova Roma. In honor of the God Apollo. Mind you it is a bit in the darker aspects, but I wrote this in the context of what happened if suddenly all your followers stopped believing. What would a God do? That sort of thing...Again feedback appreciated..

Apollo’s War  07/07/2009


Jupiter’s bolt hits the sky, striking clouds, viciously, precariously without a word of warning. 

Neptune raises his ocean’s waves, no longer calm, the waves roll in pure fury. 

The storms above the earth brew without an ounce of mercy. 

This is the first strike, the final straw, there is no going back, only forward and there I shall go.

 Treading onward, my silver bow and arrows my only reminder, the only required.

 As I set upon the motion of conquering those now deemed unworthy.

The unfaithful, whom have chosen to forget.In prayers, in deeds, andthat of worth.

You have turned your backs on me, and thus incurred my wrathful scorn. Be prepared

To suffer my deadly assault, let those who survive be alone to mourn. For I am both just and merciful,

 as I am both light and dark. I am twin to the Moon, my flames of fire aligned with the wilds of the Hunt.

As Pluto’s horn brings lost souls home, my anger will bring forth bright redemption.

A deep carnal salvation, a final tribute to my retribution. As I march forward, to put in

Place the lost sheep, bring back into the fold. The only way the sun God knows how, by
Marching forth to war.

Hello Cornelia:
You have written this so well, but I'm not
too brilliant most of the time, and you're
so well read. This is way over my head, and
that is sad, because it means I can't give
you any intelligent feedback on your work.
I'm just a silly rhymer, not a good poet
like yourself. I'm going to recruit you
some high IQ fans. LOL..Kind regards B.
