Haiku Monday: Pretend

Mighty prize of war?
No! Agamemnon's deceit
decimated Troy

Hope. First weaponized
by Virgil's equine pretense.
Now?  Standard practice

The belly of the beast?
Presented as  a fool's prize .
Early spin doctors!

Art spawn'd by Troy's myth
illustrates mans deception.
Hope. It's a hard death.

What did Helen think?
Some great prize won by default?
Whoa! to foolish trust

Thanks you!

any advice on which two to have Czar judge?

Fleurdeleo said...

Wow...! What images! And you've really come up with very different feelings and language for each one. I would definitely mark the first one for inclusion in the judging. I like that the best because of it dignity and simple force.
