The seed three times too strong. And its produce:
Children of rape, a Rome of ravishment
That bred a brawn of two, a brutal rent,
Fertile and virile, virgin prize at roost
Raped. Rhea, gentle doe, by son of Zeus
Pierced sharp, the mar of Mars, the arrow sent,
Or sword, and soiled with seed that rich cement,
His vigour vibrant thrived, and ripped her loose.
That beast gave suck and succour robbed that twain
Of frail fragility, their mother’s curse
Vitality imbibed and buoyed by breed
That they were born of war, in blood and pain,
And battle raised and into battle burst,
And race of warlike flooded from that seed.
