Lamblike Beast

Docile and yet powerful?
Is that possible?
Where can i find the recipe for this deadly combination?

This is the holy grail that i am in quest of
so they say.


Here there can be no Lancelot 


Only Penelope, ravished and outraged 
with a cracking throat, unheard sobs,
whom the world denounces - a whore !

It all her fault
her Helen-like beauty is her doing
she could have undone herself
why didn't she?
the temptress that she is 
the face that launch'd a thousand ships 
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?


the poor soul that fell in sin
the miserable creature seduced by the lamb-like lioness 
forgive him - he is unaware of his doings.

STONE HER! Burn her at stake !
The Witch! the seductress! the Whore should not be left on the prowl!
