Bad Helen of Troy

Helen in Hell

“And were you pleased?” they asked of Helen in Hell.
“Pleased?” answered she, “when all Troy’s towers fell,
And dead were Priam’s sons, and lost his throne,
And such a war was fought as none had known,
And even the gods took part, and all because
Of me alone? Pleased?
….”I should say I was!”

-Lord Dunsany
