Brutus Iulius Trois part 12

*readers  think of this epic as classic Latin badly translated into English.

Brutus Iulius Trois Part 12

Minerva glared at the other Goddesses
and angrily gave advice to father Jove
Banish these unruly Trojan children 
remove them from all the shores they have known
perhaps then peace can be made between us
and the Trojan wars truly ended
Jove stood  and there was silence
The Trojans are our children but the Trojans are not children
Venus would you have warriors wear woman's tunics
and hide in their homes as barbaric  anarchy reigns
Juno I keep what oaths I may but even I must bow to fates decrees
if life's tapestry were to be unraveled even we would be swallowed by chaos
The unsettled ones will be gathered and scattered to new homes in the wilderness 
in the west well protected by wave 
lies the isle of giant Albion, Neptunes son
he that was slain by Hercules 
to this Isle shall Brutus bring his Trojans

**more to come  this is a pages long epic after all.
