Bad Zeus… #Poetry

Zeus, King of the Gods
Is no more than a rotten, unfaithful husband
Who cannot keep it in his pants
Fathering demigods here and there
Even playing the hero
Giving birth to one of his offspring
From his own thigh
Turning himself into a swan
Cute as that may be, doesn’t cut it in my book
Neat trick, though.
Just goes to show it’s hard to find a good man
Above or below
Years ago, I was advised to keep looking
As many do make it to their
fiftieth anniversary and beyond
Without falling from the tracks
Let’s hope Santa has a surprise
on the back of his sleigh this year…
