My brother was Hades,

I admired him the most...

All those empty bottles

by his feet,

and you should have seen

the night he got drunk

and taught Demeter

how to 'tap' dance.

She was walking

the John Wayne

the next day.

Anyhow, all I got was the sea;

this body of water

that doesn't agree

with my skin

and a trident.

Granted, there's a couple of dolphins

that are meant to be

the most intelligent species around,

but I'm yet to see any proof of that,

not one has escaped the trident,

but I suppose,

I just take after

my brother.

The End
