Aphrodite Acrostic

Reverend Allyson Szabo

Appalling beauty is her fame and her curse.

Posed nude, as celebrities are wont to do, proud and unashamed.

Hephasteos took her as wife, knowing she would stray.

Ran to Ares, fell in love, but as always, was fickle.

Old and abiding hatred for the boar, who stole her Adonis.

Desire and lust she inspires in all she touches.

It is unwise to scorn her worship!

To her, we humbly offer roses, poppies, and apples.

Eris provided the apple of discord that unraveled Troy.
