Written for Chimera 66 Writing Challenge.


I was born in a cave

Father said I was his messenger

Winged hat and shoes were my favorite fashion

Squirmed free and ran to Thessaly

Brother love is what I craved

But robbed my brother instead

Brother protested my new-found herd

Zeus and Maia argued about that they did

Mother said it could not be

Father disagreed

Time for me to play my lyre







Tell me your thoughts!
