(it gets better about 40 seconds in….. just you wait)

History forgets more than it remembers
Invents more than it ever knew.
History gave me many names,
Dubbed me many things–
Seductress
Seduced
Siren
Villain
Trojan

In the same breath as they glaze over Paris’ lust
And Aphrodite’s vanity,
They wash away my truth;
In the same way they glorify the thousand ships launched for my beauty,
They mythicise my existence;
They forget I was a Queen,
A Spartan,
A warrior in my own right.

History is mistaken:
I am not a myth.

I am strength and I am guilt;
Prize and cargo;
Noble and broken

I am many things.
But I am not
Of Troy.
