Dr. Zeus

Sometimes I wish I was the god Zeus,
Don't laugh and point, I'm not a silly Geus.
I just think it would be fun to live on Mount Olympus,
I'd be big, and strong and not a human Wympus.

Being king of the gods would really be a feat,
I'd be loved, I'd be worshipped, I'd be one of the eleat.
I could throw bolts of lightening and start lots of fires,
While woodnymphs and fair maidens serenaded me with their lires.

But sadly, Zeus was just a god of the Greeks,
If you believe in him now, people will say you're a geek.
Still, now and then, being Zeus would be fun,
Being a god really rules, when all's said and dun.

You might want to sell these lyrics to Gunter.

What's wrong with geeks?

Tim, I love you man, really, but sincerely, I think perhaps you might want to leave this sort of prose to lights. Matter of fact, just have him edit it, rewrite it, whatever it is that lights does so damn well, and repost it, and I swear I'll never admit to having read the original if you don't. I can't say what the others might do, though. Knowing them, because they love you so much, they will exalt you for having done it regardless, and then we'll never hear the lights version that possibly could have changed the course of literary history, with a footnote attached noting it was based on something Tim wrote. Oh, and I can brag about having been there when it happened. On second thought.........

OJ, I would sell it to Gunter, but I don't have the energy to translate it for him. And there is nothing wrong with geeks. I realize you have a geek fetish and are a bit sensitive about this topic. But I needed something that rhymned with "Greek." Leek, meek, seek, peak, peek, teak, and beak didn't cut it. Sorry.

I am sorely disappointed in you. I realize you were impressed with Lights' ability to rehash Green Eggs and Ham with his own sad sexual exploits. But I hoped that you would be able to recognize the genius of an original Seuss-like composition playing off the god Zeus and a plethora of misspelled words. From this day forward, THE Michael is dead to me. You will now be simply, Michael. Harsh, I know, but it had to be done.

Alex Pendragon said...

Oh yea? Well.....double double secret deads to you! From this day forward, you will forever be known to me as the Knight that goes NIT NIT NIT..........

That'll show you.........

On second thought, this is the lamest start of a blood feud I ever saw.....nevermind

reminder to self: do not take a sip of coffee as you click on tim's blog if you don't want to spray the moniter.

the title alone did it for me. Though I must say, your Zeus looks more like Neptune to me. Something seems a little fishy.

Hayden, You have restored my faith in humanity. But it is Zeus. He is holding a lightening bolt in his right hand and that is Pegasus in the foreground. I snapped the photo at Ceasars Palace years ago.

The person formally known as "THE" Michael just doesn't have a clue.

Hayden said...

oh well then. Ceasar's Palace. He should know.

Time said...

Hayden, Don't make me diss you.

I would not rewrite tim-id
for dollars, pesos, or ten quid

I'm afraid that I'm obtuse
and haven't learned so much of Zues

But to show you that I'm clever
Thought I'd throw this crap together

The poem tim wrote is quite well crafted
I'm sorry mike if you felt shafted

So thank you tim the poem was swell
Ignore the micheal (he's not well)

Time said...

Lights, that was beautiful. Gunter is still weeping. Who is this Michael person you speak of?

JP (mom) said...

Was this written by Dr. Seus or Dr. Zeus?
