Virgil's Greatest Loss

Virgil's Greatest Loss
by Robert Paul Gass (aka Imagines Vinco aka Ultionem Vinco)
The love for Dido left to purer shores
For hymen's knot Evander's daughter sought
And Pluto shelters love Sychaeus stores
For Dido's flesh with nothing fresh begot.
The worst blaspheme the Romans claimed for pain
Was far beyond the milk from breast of beast
And Virgil knew the sting of penis cane
With Trojans bold escaping fate of East.
Augustus loved the reference bold of fate
And claimed the writer damned to torture fierce
As undeserving wretch to ever hate
The lack of virgin hymen pure to pierce.
Augustus' greatest passion drained the soul
Of Virgil claiming virgins greatest toll.
