The Temple And The Fortress

A. She waited twenty years for my ship to come in. She told me she would wait forever. I left her on the shore. I sailed away with a white mast up. I won a thousand battles, and lost five thousand men, I journeyed to the ends of the world, and it spat me out again. I nearly died, I nearly died. I drunk nectar, was transformed into a lion; made love to goddesses. Then the gods looked down, declared a checkmate and she jumped into the sea. You laughed, called it Mills and Boon, and turned over onto your side.
