CLXIX: There Once Was a Battle of Frogs & Mice, the Satirical Silliness of the Batrachomyomachia

We all know the famed battle of Achaean and Trojans, but what about the equally epic battle between the Frogs and the Mice?

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
