The Idiom Of Love

I was drinking wine
I was making minds mine
I was turning keys
I was setting people free
I was being deceived 
By the silent side of me

I was welcomed home
I was gone away
I was free to roam
I was told to stay
I was being confused
By the soul that I had used

I was flying by
I was flying high
I was never questioned why
I was prepared to die
I was beautified
By the ugly side of life

I was crying tears
I was drowning in my fears
I was feeling weak
I was releasing my years
I was afraid to peak
Afraid to get near

I was smart enough to be a step ahead
She did more crying than I did
I was strong enough to be brave
She loved enough to be my slave
I was dumb enough to let her go
She was smart enough to lose hope

The Idiom and the Oddity Part7 Fina

So, as we say in Greece
That’s where I’ll End my story
For the things that happen next
Weren’t made for song of glory

So many Tails, throughout the ages
Have spoke of love and loss
Of  passions and betrayals
The triumphs and the cost

But never was one told
That meant as much to me
To launch a thousand ships
And survived through history

And with every great Greek story
There’s a lesson to be learn
So, I’ll leave you with this message
Now the last page, has been turned 

The moral still stands true
Throughout all time, which passes
Don’t steal a person’s love away
And beware Greeks bare-ing asses 

THEE END                   Authored By Jerry T Curtis 
                                       The Year of The Horse

The Idiom and the Oddity Part 1

I must apologize, This piece is quite lengthy,
but it was inspired by Homer's epic story.
  I hope you like it.

The Idiot and the Oddity    by Jerrius Curtpopolius      
Page 1 Troy

Some walls were built to last forever
Some were made to fall
But the one you built between us
Was the strongest of them all

As I stand here on the barren beach
Gazing at you city
I do admit, that what I see 
Is Strong and Grand and Pretty

Why did you take, your love from me
Did I,  not treat you well
Wined and dined, to make you mind
And swear to never tell

But then you left,
And with you took
The love, that filled those halls
Then fled across,  the open sea
To hide behind these walls

How could you touch my hand?
Now void of all affection
And even gaze upon my face
Without a fond reflection

Be it I, behind,  Your walls
And You exposed upon this beach
I would open wide my gates
And inward you beseech   

Page 2

But I,  the fool and you the wise      
Have carried off my love
And I would launch a thousand ships
To free a single dove

Because I can, only Measure
What buys, rents or pays
And never seek,  the pleasure
To consider love that way

So here I stand, outside your wall
Shall this be war between us
Where love once shared, hate now lies bear
For all the Gods have seen us

I bear no shame, for love is madness
And on you,  I cast no curse
For having never loved at all
For me does seem, much worse

It’s sad to think,  that we must clash
And maim the flesh we cherish 
Soon,  some will cry and some will die
But all of us will perish

If I could but, close my eyes 
And leave this lonely shore 
Then say goodbye to my heart
And vow to love no more

Page 3

Then Gods be praised, for it would save                     
A million men or more
Still, another way would save the day
If thou opened up thy door

Still no reply, my ears must lie
For we were close in spirit
Your heart and mine, so intertwined 
I did not have to hear it

The moments come, I see you there
Perched high upon your wall
You hold my heart, within your hand
You really have some gall

You gaze at me,  as if I were
Beneath contempt, a savage
But I am, what I was back then
The victim you did ravage

Now draw your sword and meet thy fate
My harden steel awaits thee
Before we’re done, there’ll be just one
And both of us, be set free

Your gate now opens slowly
As your men rush into line
The stench of Battle thickens
Now your men are facing mine

The Idiom and the Oddity The King's Song

King Menelaus' Song  aka ( Helen's husband )

A Trojan boy, he stole my love
And I know where he’s hidin’
But all I have’s a thousand ships
I need your help Poseidon

I dare not tell a single soul 
But in you I’m confidin’
I want to tear his huge walls down
And stand there right beside him

I hope on me you’re smilin’

I can not live another day
With this pain I’m feelin’
So please let me just have my way
Can’t you see that I am kneelin’

It’s on you waves, I’m ridin’

I know some way, there’ll come a day
I,  with my love abidin’
Until that day, all I can say
I’m glad with me You’re sidin’

You’re the best of all the titans

The Idiom and the Oddity Part 3

Page 7

We’ll build a wooden structure                                   
With planks torn from our ships
And place it by their gates
Then we wait for the eclipse 

Now I know you all have questions
About how I know these things
But I’ve studied all religions
Foreign Nations, Queens and Kings

Some kingdoms honor Bears
Some worship cats and eagles 
Some lions, tigers, bears, “Oh My” 
Foxes, wolfs and beagles 

Now, these Trojans have one fondness
It stands upon four feet
It feeds upon the grassy plains
And they ride it down their streets

We will build it long and sleek
With a tail tacked to its end
And ears, upon its oblong head
But, with one thing more to send

There, concealed inside its belly
Are those who lie in wait
For the beast to be drawn inside
The Trojan’s massive gates

Page 8

So until the sun starts rising                                        
You men must now embark
And assemble the device
While working in the dark

The others on the beach
A distraction will devise
To keep your labor secret
From those Trojan’s prying eyes

Now off with you, behind that mound
I have a party to attend
It’s not often I can have some fun
At the same time to offend 

( Troy 1184 BC, The Beach Party ) 

The Flames of passion darted up
Into the evening air
It made the glittering of sand
Seamed like stars were everywhere 

The drums had reached a beat
That made the young men, have to dance
And I’m sure it made The Trojans
Lose control and wet their pants

Page  9

While young men danced on burning sands            
Displaying sex appeal
The Greeks would pause and strike a pose
And flex their buns of steel

The Trojans on the wall
Filled with heighten passion soon
Turned their backs and dropped the drawers
Displaying many moons

It seemed as if, we played all night
Now its time to take our chances
Bring forth the horse, and by due course
We all took second glances 

The carpenters that worked all night
Had never seen the beast
It was a horrible interpretation 
That is to say the least

I should have choose an artist
Much more suited for the task
For instead of building a mighty horse
There stood a giant ass.

No time to make corrections for
The dawn was growing near
We must move without detection
And crawl in through its rear

The Idiom and the Oddity Part 5

Now a word from the Author.
I hope all the readers are familiar
with, Homer's "lliad and the Odyssey"
From which this was inspired.
In addition to what you may remember
of Greek mythology, I would like to add
That the Greek God Aries, presumably 
never took sides in war, he was content
to let men fight it out themselves, but
this time, was different, and here is his song....  


I was quite content
Never giving my consent
In any godly matter that occurred
Now some don’t think that’s right
Leaving humans left to fight
But to me, all this bickering absurd 
I really hate to choose
Who should win and who should lose
But there’s one town that I thoroughly enjoy

I love Troy
I love Troy
I love every Mother’s son 
And soldier boy 
What a town, just look around
In a minute you’ll be dancing upside down
So much to eat, Oh what a treat
This city is on fire, feel its heat
If you’re going to live it boy
There’s no city like my Troy
I love Troy
I love Troy
I love Troy

Sure, I’m the God of War

But, I never felt this way before

So here, I’ll say it one more time

Though the Gods may stand divided
In my Heart I have decided
There’s no reason, that I should be playing coy
I love Troy!

The Idiom and the Oddity Part 2

Page 4

They do not move a muscle                           
Nor give unto their fears
But contemplate their carnage
Have you even not, one tear

Had I known you like I do now
You wicked callous beast
I never would have shown you
That my heart was in your reach

When the first drop of precious blood
Impacts upon this ground 
I swear I’ll not forgive you
And by the Gods I’ll strike you down

But could we not turn, this tide
And you and I once more
Find the love sent from about
And do, as we adore

NO,  cause you insist to make my wish
Lie broken on the floor
And wear a glove while touching love
Just like a filthy whore

Don’t think the Gods won’t notice
You’re defiled and you’re sick
By using love to hide behind
To pull this dirty trick

Page 5

Ah, to one trick there’s another   
And I possess my share
Be patience and I’ll show you
What can happen to your lair

With cunning and with cruelty
My counsel will evoke
A very cunning plan
That would make Poseidon choke 

I will converse, with Apollo
To have the sun replace the moon
So therefore catch a tan
If it’s possible, by noon 

Then I’ll call on my Seamstress 
To sew me something smart
With these hand made silver boots
This is Fashion’s off the charts

Of course all my solders
Will be dressed up in their best
Tunics will be optional
And so might the rest

We will decorate the beach
With a bonfire and some torches
So the enemy can watch
While they’re lounging on their porches

Page 6

Send a ship down to the tropics                                   
I think seafood would be nice
And one up to the artic 
To fetch all some ice

I know some Greek dancing songs
We’ll get the band to play
And I’ll maybe sing a solo
To melt, their hearts away

Cause no one, but no one
Puts a party on like me
And makes the end to every war
A spectacle to see

When things start dieing down
Very late at night
We all crawl to our ships
And we’ll put out the lights

We give them the impression
We’re all drunk and going home
This should make them feel relieved
That we’re leaving them alone

But that is when we pull 
The oldest trick, found in the book
With a sinister contraption
This deception’s off the hook

The Idiom and the Oddity Part 6

Page 14

It took time to remove 
The stones that formed the arch
That’s the place above the gates
Under which their armies marched

But we remained very quite
Observing through the cracks 
Drinking bottled wine
And nibbling on some snacks

They finally cleared a way
And opened the gates wide
Then laid their hands upon the ropes
To pull our ass inside

There were times, I felt cunning
And times I felt amused
That men of such intellect
Could fall for such a ruse  

But, be it as it may
My concern is only this
To burst out of this ass
And take a good long p**s

I know what you’re thinking
And I’d like to keep it clean
But as you know how stories go
I have to paint the scene

Page 15

When they got us in the city
There was music in the air
The Trojan started dancing
Food and drink were everywhere

There were pigs biting apples
Above the flames formed in a pit
With every sort of creature
They could skewer upon a spit

Oh, and wine flowed from fountains
And confections by the score
The soldiers ate and drank
Till they couldn’t feast , no more 

Their priest stopped by at midnight
To bless our parting gift
And I christened it myself
If you kinda catch my drift 

It was early morning hours
When the last ones fell to sleep
So we opened up the hatch
And we began to creep 

Down a rope, we slid slowly
To the ground we made our way
To the gates that we must open
At last I’ll have the day

To be continued..............

The Idiom and the Oddity Part 4

Page 10

‘T wasn’t long before we nestled                        
In the belly of the beast 
And we might not all have fit
If it wasn’t for some grease

Demetre was disturbed
By the prodding of a sword
So he said to Val discreetly
You’re not the only one who’s bored

There’s no time to horse around
Or for gaiety of sorts
Until we win this town 
There’ll be no more water sports

I had to be very firm
For these men sure like to play
And focus on the reason
We were all crammed in this way

Achilles’ please stop shoving
There’s no room to give you more
And , Philo please wake up
For, I loath to hear you snore

The others on the beach
Have set sail,  and left in mass
As I could see so very well
From a crack found in the ass 

Page 11    You're Just Busting My Walls

Then just as we expected
The large Gates opened wide
And all those crazy Trojans
Came out, who were inside

Some looked upon my ass
With glee and adoration
While others sot to burn it down
Without investigation

Their highest Priest, now stepped forth
To speak the voice of reason
Don’t you see it is a "Horse"
A gift we should find pleasing

Still others shouted out, awful words
Not worth repeating
And our ass seem in some trouble
As their tempers started heating

It wasn’t long, till it began
The eclipse was right on time
It convinced the unbelievers
That my big ass was divine

They all bowed down to kiss it
It was a spectacle to see
And I’m glad I didn’t miss it
For it was,  personal to me

Page 12

My men until this day
Claimed a tear, formed by my eye
And I quickly turned away
So they wouldn’t see me cry

But the moment didn’t last 
As we found we were in motion
They tied ropes around my ass
And applied a slippery lotion

Now the wheels had proper grease
And the lines where taunt and tight
They started pulling on my ass
And were using all their might

We were really rolling now
As we headed for the gate
The men got so elated 
That they hardly couldn’t wait

When we finally reached the gates
We had to stop a bit
Our structure was too tall
And this big ass, wouldn’t fit

But one of their members
A fricken genus, if  I may
Said, lets tear down that portion
Of the wall that’s in the way
