Greek Gods: Where Are They Now?

The reign of the Greek Gods has ended,
The Kingdom of Olympus is gone,
But yet the Gods were immortal,
And surely they live on.
So we gathered our forces,
And can show you how,
They live today on this episode,
of ‘Greek Gods Where  Are They Now?’

Hera and Zeus finally got a divorce,
In 1975,
They both are living happily now,
Enjoying the single life.
Zeus relishes his freedom,
Now that they are no longer together,
He camps out in the Playboy mansion,
And goes by the name Hugh Hefner.
Hera’s a public figure,
And allows us all to witness,
Her dramas on the reality show,
Real housewives of Mt. Olympus.

Hades found his lot in life,
Selling up cruise control,
He works as a used car salesman,
A junker in turn for your soul.
Poseidon says he rarely misses,
Ruling the ocean blue,
Now he works at Sea World,
Training the great Shamu.

Hermes was sentenced to prison for life,
But can barely suppress a chortle,
The joke will be on the system,
When they find he is immortal.
Aphrodite is a columnist at Cosmo,
With perhaps a hint of sarcasm,
She tells middle aged ladies,
How to fake an orgasm.

Athena’s a computer consultant,
A profession she proclaims a dream,
While Artemis and Apollo kick ass,
On a WWE wrestling team.
Dionysus’ hard living caught up with him,
Now the town drunk, he learned his lesson,
And often sees Hephaestus on the streets,
Peddling illegal weapons.

Demeter’s still in agriculture,
Among the flora and fauna,
She works hard tending to her crops,
Of skunky marijuana.
Ares now regrets his ways,
And sways most compassionate,
As he runs a class in Cyprus,
Counseling anger management.

The Greek gods served their purpose well,
And heeded to the calling,
And now we can only think with regret,
Of how the mighty have fallen.
For it seems that modern times,
Have put them through the ringer,
Be sure to tune in next week,
When they reunite on Springer.

  1. After hearing your tremendous;y witty verse the chorus is bravoing, bravoing, bravoing…
    As for Prometheus he is the only Greek God who has not changed with the times, as chained, he remains bound to his present.

    MB, if you ever want to collaborate it would be an honor.

      • Hi Marissa,
        I have a un-novel idea that we could produce a joint blog in which our verses would be complementary, if not complimentary. It could be fun and developmentally significant writing-wise at the same time. For the most part we wouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel as we could work off of what one of us has already written.

        It could give us “underachievers” an opportunity and focus to eee gads do our “best” work.

        If you give me the okay to P-rime M-inister you I will and then we could discuss it in more detail and determine if we want to proceed with it.

        Muchas saludos,
        Les

      • That sounds fine. By PM, would that be through my email? I think my address is on my account. Sorry but it seems that I have as much trouble figuring out what all these communication terms are as you do. Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you but please be warned that I am currently at work at may not be able to give this my full attention to a bit later in the day. Despite what I keep telling this man that calls himself my boss, he refuses to understand how inconvenient all this bookkeeping stuff is when I clearly need to be focusing on my writing career!!

      • Hi Marissa,

         

        Super!

         

        I'll email you by late tonight as right now Little Shu-Shu and myself are going to hit the trails and then I will be preparing a feast for Maria.

         

        Bosses can be so bossy!

         

        Muchas saludos,

        Les
