Hehe tricksy not-so-ancient Greek, I says. You're spinning out these irreverent references with glee - love the Dionysus bit. I'm not that familiar with Ganymede, but something tells me Zeus is gonna get his comeuppance. Great fun!

Interesting how it flows with those variances, David. I do appreciate those unstressed syllables now - you're correct about it counteracting the sing-song effect. Well done - enjoying these immensely.

Does this mean Zeus got out of lock in.....:)? Didn't hear any heads roll...:)

And Ganymede does what Hera says not Zeus, so that conversation took place first, eh? And....[who] killed his father?

Oh, this is getting more profound than just simple football game my Friend...
Are you having fun yet...?...:)

Thank you for creating this and sharing.
Take care & be safe

I read somewhere of switching out the foot
as you did by varying the meter.
I can't remember what you call that trick
but if I need it I'll remember quick.

This is the kind of thing that we all need
and if I can hang on to it, I'll heed.

Thanks for the A/N it was definitely interesting to learn too bad I suck at structured anything :) Now onto the review... this one I actually had one little nit... I didn't feel Zeus should say 'Get off your butt and hustle to the bar ' but maybe tale or some other variety of butt... somehow I just can't picture him sitting on a lazy-boy throne saying that... maybe it is just me...

Can't wait to read more of this~

This is a pleasant piece and the rhyme scheme helps to create a nice flow which helps the enjoyment of the read all that much more. Good work.

I'm dogmatically certain about much.
Hey, it's MY flaw - go get your own!

Hmmm; comedy relieved by sadness; this is a good respite, an extra dimension that takes the setting from farce closer to reality. Meter felt a little rough in places, but still way ahead of second place.

All the best, Gil.

Before I applaud this new piece, I want you to know that as a school assignment I wrote a commentary on your poem "Poetic Brothers" in Kindred Trinity. Would you like me to PM you what I wrote?

I don't remember Zeus' relationship with Ganymede - it's been a while since I've studied Greek mythology - but this new entry is as pleasant, skillful, and entertaining as ever.
