Neptune is demanding back royalties;
Wants a comped Maserati GranTurismo
Rome burns with news of the deal
The other Gods inflamed with jealousy
They have a pyro-manic-depressive emperor,
Goes from Nero to Legion at the drop of a toga
It’s all maximum circus now,
Romulus pulls a knife on Remus
You know how cubs can be; wolfing-
down competition in the mything world
Drunk and stumbling down the Appian way
Zeus: “By Jove, I was a Greek God when I was young!”
While Ares is reading a book on Mars
Jupiter’s fowling up the human’s bars
Gods, men and boys,
Tridents of wantonness and toys
Neptune’s drop-top impresses no Nereids;
Arethusa isn’t seeking a Poseidon adventure.
Water Virgins and Juno lawyered up
Another Archaic Triad bites the dust
qbit has taken up the challenge! We are doing a collaborative Renga; alternating couplets. Gods know where we’ll end up. Fasten seat belts!
Yep! I called it! This was a wild, top-down ride, roam’n along the Appian Way (way!). It’s a land of allusions…. How could it not be?
