Medusa

Medusa

Hoodoo befallen and callously laden,
Athena dethrones once beautiful maiden.
Allured and pursued for her beauteous amour,
Ravaged in vain by the sea god Poseidon.

Afflicted and fleeced of her mortal domain,
She slithers most hideous upon darkened plains.

Venomous serpents’ locks of her hair,
Avenged for befouling her temple and lair,
Monstrous gorgon sits on her throne,
All who see her reduces to stone.
