Zeus at Easter

Zeus at Easter

I won’t say I’m bitter

I’m more incandescent

Why no chocolate thunderbolts

or swan shaped cakes?

A piñata in the shape

of a bull or an eagle.

Decorative bonsai oak?

It could be a cool festival man,

But not a card from Aphrodite;

Apollo, Hercules, any of my kids,

Going to spend the day cloud gathering

disguising myself as a variety of animals,

same old, same old,

May take Hera out

for a spot of lunch

if she ever stops talking

to Echo.
