Poetry – Of Gods and Men

Rhea, Cronus
and baby Zeus
snuggle 
in the heart
of Mount Olympus.

Father plots 
infanticide,
while son sleeps,
dreaming
world domination.

Mother
shakes her head
and rolls her eyes
yet again
at the foolishness
of men.

Poetry – Pledge of Allegiance (Hades)

under
I pledge allegiance
to the underworld
of our darkest King, Hades,
and his beautiful,
Queen of duality, Persephone.

And to the lost souls
upon the shores of the Styx,
one hellscape,
under the earth,
brought together
with eternity
and somber humility
for all.

(I have to give props to Green Day’s song “Minority” for giving me the first two lines of this poem and the idea to run with it!)
