Centaurs (III)

Centaurs, your deaths were deserved,

and all the spirits and deities of forests

rightly shed no tears at your slaughter,

you, monsters, mixed bestial breed,

half-men, half-horse,

children of Ixion and Nephele.

Centaurs (II)

Hercules warned the Centaurs to stay away

and to control themseleves,

but they mocked, demeaned him,

so that he had no choice but to attack and kill them.

Centaurs (I)

In a tavern Hercules was drinking,

eating and with friends jesting,

when suddenly the Centaurs burst in,

a drunk marauding mob

intent on violence and carnage.

Giants (III)

Hey you, Giants Otus and Ephialtes,

foolish and overweening you were,

when you piled Mount Ossa upon Mount Pelion,

so you could storm Mount Olympus.

Failure and death were your just deserts.

Giants (II)

Hercules’ arrow piercing the Giant’s belly:

a sudden thump, clasp of air,

the monster gasping,

from the wound blood gushing.

Hercules admin on 26 Oct 2011

Giants (I)

All of heaven shook,

all of earth trembled,

the whole underworld

almost collapsed,

when Zeus

and the Olympian gods and goddesses

battled the Giants,

those accursed creatures,

hundred-headed,

hundred-handed,

intent on usurping the throne

and ruling the world,

and implanting a reign of terror

and darkness.

On that day the Olympians

would have been defeated

had they not enlisted the aid of Hercules,

who, with his bow and arrows,

helped destroy the Giants.

The Rage of Hera

The rage of Hera,

who hated Hercules

for being the bastard son of Zeus,

her husband.

From his birth to his death,

Hercules was plagued with woes

sent by his stepmother Hera.

The infant Hercules (II)

Hercules awoke and immediately strangled the serpents’ necks,

their venomous existence slithering into nothingness.

The infant Hercules (I)

Serpents hissed and slithered,

while baby Hercules in his cradle slumbered,

unaware of any danger.

Hercules

Soulful Muses of Heaven,

sing of Hercules, son of Zeus and Alcmene,

the Greek hero who accomplished the greatest feats

and yet endured the most tragic sorrows and grief.
