Friday Night Lights (Paris and Achilles)

You're not dipped in gold

A man once invincible 

Glory wrought on football fields of battle

T'was but to the Gods who saw me was I invisible

gnashing my teeth she saw a smile

Aphrodite, a beautiful maiden who begat no guile

And now

Achielles! You seek to take that which is mine!

Achielles! You know not that now is your time!

Guide my action and heed my missile 

By the grace of Apollo I will complete this dismissal 

See the scores amongst the scores

Those who wished me to fail!

Your hero Achilles can save you no more

Fate compells me alone to prevail
