Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Sep 28 2011Views/Reads: 1590/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
With his punishment and labors completed, Hercules must go home to face his fears and his loss...

In punishment now 

My labor be done 

By Heaven divine 

Conviction is won 

Twelve efforts twelve years 

Too much to conceive 

With club and a bow 

Although I'm bereaved 

The mighty enforce 

Has stolen the day 

From King and alike 

And naught but to say... 

"I've finished these deeds 

You've asked to perform 

I must go back home 

And weather the storm 

A family gone 

Now shredded to tears 

The labor undone 

I go face my fears"
