The BBC will seize any excuse
To push their sad agenda – in this show
They portray Patroclus, Achilles, Zeus,
As being black – a shock, a numbing blow
To Greeks. Their Iliad, a tale of woe,
Of heroes, champions and baleful war,
They love, and well its tragedy they know:
The battles on the plain, the blood and gore,
The siege of Troy. So how to then ignore
This dark development, this loathsome lie,
This mangling of the myth, this fatal flaw?
Achilles, the white Greek – he’s a black guy?
Patroklas too, and Zeus! Which one’s the worst?
They should have run the cast by Homer first.
