Cerebral thunderstorm rages.
Odysseus tied to the mast,
Garbled Greek girls’ voices
Intone insane idyllic imagery
Tormenting all who hear,
Orpheus commits suicide.
Eris smiles and peels an apple.
Roving round rough ragged rocks
Greeks and gods gyre and grate
On Scylla and Charybdis shores.
Delphi’s dreaming druid declares
Only Odysseus will return to love.
Lies and deceit await the rest,
Each one of Ulysses’ champions
Owes Charon their coins.
