Don't Be Afraid Of Satyr... Poem by Sheeya Hacks

Don't Be Afraid Of Satyr...

Rating: 4.9

Don't be afraid of Satyr, a wild and crazy thing,
Just join in the revelry, let your heart take wing,
For Satyr is a joyous creature, full of life and glee,
And if you have him as your friend, you'll be as happy as can be!

Oh Satyr, how different you are and what a sight to see,
For Romans you are half-man, half-goat, as jolly as can be.
You possess pointed ears and a mischievous grin,
well, take us on adventure with your devilish kin.

In Greek art you represent as a man with a horse's ears and tail
how can I not fantasy you with my instincts of male
you hooves go clop-clop, in a merry tune
and dance around the fire under the shining moon
Lets drink and feast together, with a ravenous appetite
and tell bawdy stories, that will keep us awake, all night

Topic(s) of this poem: mythology,fun,humorous
The inspiration for this verse originated from a typographical error in one of my remarks on Bri's poem. I mistakenly wrote Satrs instead of Stars, which Brian, in his characteristic manner, presumed was an intended reference to Satys instead of Stars. This led him to send me information on Greek Mythology, which I researched further and discovered that the Romans also had their own mythology. This is how this poem came to be.

line 8: I'd alter this VERY SLIGHTLY. lines 10 and 11: You have some editing to do on these, I say. I know you can do it well IF you don't have a hangover from your nighttime of carousing.

Perhaps biotechnology was prevalent at that age as I guess from the bodily combinations.

I give FOUR stars, ONE of which is, as agreed upon before you wrote the poem, for mentioning my name, my REAL first 'The Real World'. : )) bri

AND....I wonder if there is a FEMALE creature with some characteristics (NOT so much 'physical' ones, but...) of a satyr. NO, don't tell me.

Re: Your mention in your Poet's Notes that 'Brian, in his characteristic manner, presumed was an intended reference to Satys instead of Stars'. Ha! I KNEW you'd been drinking (booze) . I presumed no such thing, though I DID point out your typo. : )

TYPO is the reason for this poem. I liked it. How often we ignore and move on but in this case Sheeya took it humorously.

BUT don't ignore thia 'satyr feature' which I may have told you about. 'a permanent, exaggerated erection.' THAT could be DISTRACTING! ! bri : )
