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.
