Shield of Aegis

THE SHIELD OF AEGIS

Medusa, of the three sisters 

Medusa, of the Shield of Aegis

Borne by Athena into battle

Ageless and immortal

Wearing seventy two tassles of tight woven pure gold

Each the worth of one hundred oxen

And, as all protectors

She strikes fear to those

That obstruct the truths of Athena

She, the symbol of freedom and democracy

The arts

Classical learning, and

Wisdom
