Mythology! - Poem by Bill Mitton

What do you mean!
thunderbolts and lightening
and the Gods they walked
about on eggs shells
to the sound of
several sphincters...tightening
THIS is no MYTH!
another lightening bolt
One scorched Ionic Column
the Kracken quaked
The Muses fled
to leave behind a
Hera calm but solemn
Several sheep were roasted
a Ricochet the cause
Hades had his Toga singed
Poseidon lost his draws
Pan left for somewhere Georgic
Pesephone for the coast
and Ariel and Mercury
a second delivery post
But Zues would not be quietened
His words echoed from the roof

    Bill, I'm taking it at face value and it works for me. An excellent and humourous write. That's the truth. (Report) Reply
