Bloodbath

Weary from war
And gorged on travelling,
The wanderer returns.
Foremost in his mind 
A bath to soak in
And a welcome 
From his family.

Sacrilegious
Is any other  
Homecoming
Failing to honour 
A king and conqueror 
With spoils 
For all.

Yet resentment festers
In her breast
Having lost a daughter
To propel
Her husband's fleet,
And in his absence
Having found a lover.

Little does he know
How much she does
Detest,despise and dishonour
Him,her  vainglorious husband.
But her blade will bite
Into his hungry flesh
.
Then will the gods
Cry out
For vengeance
For her accursed sin
When she should have
Washed away his weariness
Without a  bloodbath.
