The Bastardization of Valkyries

According to the author,
Valkyries became more appealing characters
when their true natures
were bastardized with the times
they went from warrior demons
to sultry, yet virginal servants
of endless meat and mead
their snowy skin, blonde hair flowing
constantly, helplessly
falling in love with the men
they were serving
instead of fiercely killing them.

According to the author,
this vulnerability
is certainly more appealing.
But the new Valkyrie
(according to the obvious, the poet, the feminist)
is a travesty that sends me reeling
