Lethe

None of this would come to be,
Had Thetis used her gift of prophecy?
And invited Eris to her wedding.
 
T’was Eris that stirred up this insanity,
When she aroused the curious vanity,
Of who is the fairest of the fairest beings?
 
Had Zeus practiced fidelity,
And was to Hera true eternally,
None of this would ever come to be.
 
Gods lusting after their own creation,
And creation lusting for God’s children,
Hence, the lust, the wars, and the bloodletting.
 
Artemis extracts the price for a hind,
My life for a steady wind she opines,
Cursed wind! that demands my life.
 
The death demanding Gods will die.
For leading man into Lethean lies,
The Gods too will go into oblivion.
