Dr. Zeus – Book I – Canto VIII

Of a new being’s birth
Who arose from the earth
Of their decedent’s great power
How my spirit did sour
Of what none had endorsed
But still I was forced
Of all the results that arose from that day
How the same nothing would stay
-Oh Halcyon Muses nine-
For your version I simply haven’t the time
As this burden did fall unto me
How much it was needed you just couldn’t see
Still, this, all you did hate
Still, me, did all you berate
So I shall sing of what had to be done
Later creating two who’d be one

On Cybele I Have No More To Say

While we all did revel at that great celebration
Sky looked down ‘pon all of creation

He saw all the power he’d lost
How little, me, it seemed then to cost

He began to weep, he tears flying free
‘Twas such a torrent that no one could see

All us were blinded and stumbled about
Until his sorrow was fully cried out

But so much of himself to Earth he had given
A new live arose, ferocious and driven

In a valley of cedars where did Humwawa roam
Most fertile was she, the richest of loam

Cybele arose as though a great tree
But not being rooted Cybele was free

But Humwawa came to see what he had heard
What had scattered the beast and the bird

There he was a person divine
With a stature that said “all this is mine”

She had the body of both goddess and god
With beauty so perfect – she in no way was flawed

He felt a rising, a heat in his loin
A desire with her and her body to join

Cybele saw this and had interest as well
Her own manly organ began then to swell

She took him all ways as they shared in their need
Fulfilled their longing, their hunger to breed

She left him alone, tired and still
Now more pleasure was he able to spill

Within her their children then started to grow
As ‘cross the land she decided to go

After a while she met one of my kin
The one among us who the least time has been

Aphrodite reacted as did the monster before
As did Cybele, so she mated once more

Together the conceived a great child indeed
One who’d be Aphrodite’s partner in need

She then did Cybele to all us present
But only I was concerned with intent

She was a titan in all but her name
Her conception was near exactly the same

While Sky had no reason to Olympians hate
Our ruling the world did not him elate

So caution I kept, ease I did take
To ensure I’d not make mistake

But the others were charmed with her poise and her grace
‘Twas easy for her to bring light to their face

As the months passed and their bellies grew large
I realized the danger, what to me it would charge

Humwawa’s children were the first to be born
But this was not what made me forlorn

For they were simply what I promised to him
A line of descendants filled with vigor and vim

One of each beastman Cybele did bear
And for this I just didn’t care

For in the time since first we had met
I’d had time to examine and vet

With immortal any child she made
Would be of a more potent grade

And the child of Love would be all that I need
To show the danger of her womb and her seed

So when ‘twas time for Aphrodite to bear
That’s when I fell into despair

When Cupid was born with his arrow and bow
At once his power did he then show

Laughing as a child will do
He shot Ares and his mother straight through

In love they fell in each other’s arm
And all saw how us he could harm

“My family,” I said “I’m sure it is clear
What reason we have no to fear

“Over even us this child has power
To make more like him, we would end our own hour

“So she’s no longer such a great mate
Cybele we have to castrate”

Their love for her though, it now was too strong
With this plan they’d not go along

But I could see that they’d neither me stop
Would let me end the threat with a chop

So taking the sickle my father did use
I went to the one who could with power infuse

She put up a fight but could not hope to win
In time, her, I was able to pin

With a flick of the wrist I made a quick cut
Though still it made me sick in my gut

Her manhood I tossed into wide Ocean
Swept away by his great sweeping motion

And now with half of her genatiles gone
Cybele’s children would be lacking in brawn

So hurt, distressed, reeling in worry
My family did to her hurry

They healed and consoled, did all that they could
Exclaimed to her that I was not any good

They had, however, allowed me to act
But none of them mentioned this relevant fact

So while ‘round penis and testes gathered some foam
By my family’s concern Cybele was home
