A Conversation for Greek mythology.
voonmaynard Started conversation Jan 29, 2005
I posted this poem on my home page and I’m trying to find out if anyone gets the joke. It’s based on the idea that an immature artist imitates and a mature artist simply steals what they like and make it their own. I’ve brought it here because it relies on a knowledge of text on Greek mythology. If anyone out there gets the joke, let me know.
If your interested in more of my poetry refer to the journal section in my home space…
Hope you enjoy,
Hermes the Cunning
With quick intelligence,
Divided, and set out in portions,
A grate ox.
Wrapped flesh, and rich fatty innards
In the hide.
In thick, white fat; bound
In the paunch,
Braided, white bones!
These shall be our offerings;
For the gods are none
Too easily deceived.
