Hit or Myth
Trying to save his liver
Doesn’t mean knocking off booze,
Just protecting his entrails
With nothing left to lose.
Will Hercules ever save him?
Turnabout’s not illegal.
Finally feeling peckish,
Prometheus bites the eagle.
King Midas had a golden touch.
It didn’t seem to help him much
Sisyphus on Holiday
One must imagine Sisyphus happy.
Sisyphus is having a ball,
Pushing it uphill,
chasing it down.
He might as well be on vacation
When he really goes to town.
He grunts in part for effect
Till the mountainsides proclaim,
In the sweat-pitted whorls of his ears,
“You’ve gotten good at this game!”
They tell him, “You rock, Sisyphus!”
They assure him, “You’re on a roll!”
But tell us, what is this?
Sisyphus taking a stroll.
