HATE WEEK: TROY

New, 176 comments

Read this. Don't be this.

Why should I blame her that she filled my days
With misery, or that she would of late 
Have taught to ignorant men most violent ways,
Or hurled the little streets upon the great, 
Had they but courage equal to desire?
What could have made her peaceful with a mind
That nobleness made simple as a fire,
With beauty like a tightened bow, a kind
That is not natural in an age like this
Being high and solitary and most stern?
Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
Was there another Troy for her to burn?


-W.B. Yeats

Lookin' forward to some antiquity smack, y'all.
