Who was Damocles?:
By BlondyDawn
I always wondered who Damocles was, and so I finally looked it up. I
thought I would share it with you so you could share it with other RHPS

In the Webster's New World Dictionary (Printed in 1957 by The World Publishing Co.)
Damocles is defined as:

"in Greek legend, a courtier of ancient Syracuse who talked so much about the happiness of being a king that his own king, Dionysus, demonstrated the dangers of a ruler's life by seating him at a banquet just below a sword hanging by a hair. SWORD OF DAMOCLES, any imminent danger."

That definition may add new insight into Rocky's song. I just thought you might want to know.

RHPS forever,
