Poem – CASSANDRA CURSING (By Ray Gallucci)


“Burn that horse – It’s full of Greeks!

Drag it in? Then kiss your cheeks

Au revoir,’ for you’ll be dead.”

Poor Cassandra has no “cred.”


Non-belief’s her curséd fate.

None will heed until too late.

Bittersweet’s “I told you so,”

When there’s none but you to know.
