Guy In The Chair ....... [a response to Eugene Levich's PH poem 'The Pelican'; mythology; SHORT; a bit of humor perhaps]
I spy an old guy in a big lounging chair.
I see him as, o'er him, I glide on the air.
I know he wishes to know....where i reside,
and from him that information I'll not now hide.
“I live on a nearby island, Ithaca by name,
and Ulysses dallies in Troy, but him I don't blame.
“But while Ulysses dallies in war I dally in love,
with mortals from Earth and gods from above.
“And my name is Penelope, as near-guessed your wife.
I'll fly home with my fish now. You both have a good life.”
