By Thomas Page

What kind of bird would
I become if I were in
Ovid’s tale? Cuckoo?

What are the roles of
Myth? How many more times does
It take to not err or fail?

Steeped in wine and tragedy,
Revel in comedies.

Students read of trials
Herakles or Hercules
Wrapped in giv’n cloaks.

“Why must all myths end
In death?” Myths are warnings to
The foolish humans.
