Achilles Heel

Poem By Lee Fones

today i saw a fetus
upon my Facebook page
reminded me of lady Thetis
Achilles mother, he'd upstage

Achilles was a hero
of the Trojan war
never carried a Biro
and his heel was sore

fought battle of Troy
just outside the gates
slaying Hector, for joy
surrounded by his mates

eventually Achilles, was killed
in Trojan war, much gore
lots of blood was spilled
alas Achilles heel was born

time to get champers out
or cans that make you sway
but watch the lager lout

in the snowy winter time

Question We Must Ask

where does time really go
like a river water flow
where or whence it came
