With poetry, that lover’s gift, I serve the lady Muses. 2 My ash spear is my barley bread, My ash spear is my Ismarian wine. I lean on my spear and drink. 3 Let him go ahead. Ares is a democrat. There are no privileged people On a battlefield. 4 This island, garlanded with wild woods, Lies in the sea like the backbone of an ass. 5 Listen to me cuss. 6 Pallas Athena and our strong arms, That victory. From hill to hill in retreat We walked backward under their javelins Until we reached the rampart of stones She, Zeus’s daughter, led us toward.
