Ishtar is probably the most dangerous of all the gods. Men are dazzled by her beauty, then remember: the goddess of love is also the goddess of war. I remember something else too. Every one of her mortal lovers had a nasty ending. As the serpent bites I am added to their foolish number. After conquering the world I was finally defeated... by my own vanity. The gods won. They always do.
THE ENDOr is it?
