Poetry: “Don’t Look A Goddess” (from August 2008)

Don’t look a goddess in the eye

And if she’s bathing do not spy

For if you do, you just might die,

Or if she smites you you’ll know why

To your aid she’ll never fly

Or save your soul with your vain cries

In Tartarus you just might fry

Be wary if a Gorgon’s nigh

She’ll mesmerize ye to the sky

Don’t gaze upon her with your eyes alone

Unless you want to turn to stone

Perhaps she’ll even send a crone

To grind you up, your flesh and bone.

Though some may say it isn’t fair

With goddess near you shouldn’t stare

No matter what or when or time of year

Toward a goddess do not leer.
