Bellona

Some have called you

‘war-like’-

and rightly so.

Shrouded in the smoke of  a thousand camp-fires

your clarion trumpet

sounds the way

to glory,

to slaughter,

to immortality.

Bright-eyed, you lift the torch

you illuminate the chasm filled with the chariots of the damned.

Your spear pierces where it will-

sharpened to glossy perfection

you hold nothing back.

Guide us, maiden of the battle cry-

make our heads discerning, our hearts brave,

and our only battles

necessary-

lead us to unwavering victory,

and then,

to the spoils

of peace.
