A Greek God and His Salamander

You were a nameless Greek God

Who awoke from long slumber

Beneath the lead water

Of Great Lakes’ miraculous wad

 

One day, from underneath a log

Love lured you

To turned it over

It was him and the frog

Each, one eyed, that’s true

But your heart desired

Only the salamander

 

Salvador then you named him

And acres of soils and jungles

Were arranged for his residence

Where you threw preys with strong limbs

Then with grace,

he chased without bungles

And in awe,

you beheld his claws

Swung in unrivaled magnificence

 

But the mortals were mad

Because you took their lands for him

They invoked then, the chemical pandora box

Crippling most of your kin, it made you sad

And as you silently sit still in heavy grim

They trapped grown up Salvador in a deep pit,

then smashed him dead with laser-guided asteroid

 

Hellish grief undressed you of your divine might

Now, you’re merely one of them mortal

But I know, you will eventually fight

Once again, once for all

With a plot so dark

That none shall

Ever ever ever walk

 

So here I sit

Scratching my balls

Wishing you, a great good luck
