Hello! After an absence of a few months I figured that it was time to get back into things. Thanks to those of you who have started following. I truly do appreciate it! Summer break is here and I have more time to post. I’ve been keeping up with my personal writing fairly well and my energies are mostly going into my Greek myth inspired poems.
Here’s a new entry for folks to (hopefully!) enjoy!
Herc the Jerk!
Some folks call him Heracles,
to others he’s just ‘Herc’.
But whether Hercules or Heracles
to me he’s just a jerk!
He’s hailed as a hero,
a champion like no other.
As for me, well who am I?
I’m the big oaf’s little brother!
We know he slew a lion
and a giant with three heads,
but he boasts about it constantly
and fills my days with dread!
He repeats the tale of how he caught
some fierce man-eating mares,
but I tell you I can’t take anymore
so I really just don’t care!
He babbles on incessantly
until I think I’ll lose my mind
about how he snatched old Cerberus
and the elusive Golden Hind.
I’ve heard each and every anecdote
at least a million times before.
But since ‘”Herc the Great” exaggerates
I’m sure I’ll hear a million more!
