Weds 28 Sept - daily challenge.
Heracles, oh strong man, you.
Take down the gods, why don’t you.
Heroic decider of the Olympian battle, you,
Zeus’s ultimate mortal offspring, you.
The only man to become divine,
how was it that you got so high?
For you were not altogether that bright..
losing much in life through pride.
Overheated, didn’t you try to shoot the sun?
Oh, how your feelings overwhelmed you some.
Grudge after grudge held, your ego lived on.
Where was your logic, when trouble begun?
Oh, but what you lacked in cerebral prowess,
you made up for in wantonness;
Women, food and wine, you gobbled up,
today, a revered a heroic Grecian pin-up.
