Hear now, o’ princes of the universe
I sing of mighty deeds of arms and men
Sent forth among the sea of countless stars
Beyond the fabled garden of Athene
__
I sing of Alcamenes, Spartan born
Brave son of Lycurgis, of battle bred
Who seeing fields of blood and hope forlorn
Forsakes his birthright, mourning honoured dead.
__
Remember Jorass of the Dolphonoi
Dark Naiad of the Panthalassa’s womb
Whose dance brings many death, and many joy
Grim harbinger of Peliokis’ tomb.
__
Look now on Lyciana, Winter’s Child
Whose healers oath compels her “do no harm”
Stands fast against the army at White Field
And Spartans weep for such a feat of arms.
__
Now tremble mortal, here walks Tai’jut Erke
Strange visitor masked well in Chiron’s form
Brings death through science’s unholy work
Dark Herald of Zoran’s oncoming storm.
__
Of Draco, beauteous youth of Athens born
Wise in the ways of books, but not of toil
By deed, to honour ancestors is sworn
Perhaps a bit too fond of baby oil?
