Farewell Visit To Ulysses -1- - Poem by Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello

In Odyssey Circe drives Ulysses to go to Hades, the Kingdom of the Dead. He should ask the soothsayer Tiresias. There, among the others, Ulysses meets Achilles. We imagine something new...

In an interview on CNN Circe explained well
How one has to apply for Hades.
Achilles disappears and one finds other shades.
Ulysses, you're the modern King of Hell!
Our roles are changed, once you questionned:
We don't need it, we've your life and poems.
