LYRICS TO THE MINOTAUR (by Lynnette Shelley)
Lost behind labyrinths of stone
The beast he stands, he stands alone
Staring above the storm tossed sea
No more violent than he
With a taurean toss of his horn-crowned head
The Starry One raises his eyes of dread
To far above in his gilded castle cage
The cursed king in his beastly rage
Sacrifice of fairest flower
To which the minotaur devours
On the island home he scorns
No man can bear his crown of horns
'Til the king's daughter betrayed
her father, her monster
For the princely favor
She wished to savor
Can he save her?
As the waves of the sea
And the silence surrounds him
He lays his broken head down
In the silence he will drown
Broken, Broken, Broken Head Drown....
