Prayers to the Roman Gods: Janus

Is it gimmicky? I suppose. But, really, how else ought one to structure a poem to the god of beginnings and endings?

Prayers to the Roman Gods: Vulcan

Another poem! I don't know that Vulcan was ever described as the god of machinery, per se, but honestly it just seems to fit perfectly with his other roles, doesn't it?

Beasts of Myth & Fable #5

Beasts of Myth & Fable #4

Prayers to the Roman Gods: The Gratiae

If there's anyone who likes parties more than these three, it's... well, actually, Bacchus probably qualifies.  But their parties are better, 'cause you'll remember the party in the morning.

The Seven Wonders: The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

Isn't one of the Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries "Always loot the ruins"? No? Just the Crusader's Oath, then? Well, alright.

Beasts of Myth and Fable #3

This was a fun one to do. Lovely mirroring in the first two verses - and I daresay it's an easy one for the Classics fandom, given how often I see posts about it.
