Aphrodite's Ass(A Sorta-Kinda Limerick Poem)
There once was a goddess, Aphrodite,
who dwelt in the halls of the mighty.
Though accused of being salacious,
She actually was quite gracious.
She flirted with gods almighty,
Got the repute of being flighty.
Because her buttocks were conspicuous,
She said with words acidiferous,
'About my great rear,
Without sounding austere,
Just say that I'm callipygous.'
