It’s a short journey
From now to eternity;
But you will have to say “I Do” first
Not in the presence of a minister
Or a saffron clad old priest.
Instead head to Venus’ temple
And promise an eternity.
Then your journey to a world will begin
Where no ships would march to Troy
And Antony would ever be together
With the glorious Cleopatra.
An eternity where Hercules is a happy man
And Cassandra doesn’t die of insanity.
A world where Orpheus doesn’t stop
And turn to take a look at Eurydice
Who will dutifully follow him back to earth.
A world where Spartans are known
For their art of lovemaking.
A world of Classical Love.
