A poem about Medusa I wrote in Latin class (many years ago) for Christmas/Halloween.
| MEDUSA THE SNAKE-HEADED MONSTER
(in the tune of Rudolph the rednosed reindeer)
You've heard of Stheno and Euryale
but do you recall
the most horrible Gorgon of all...
Medusa the snake-headed monster
had many snakes upon her head
and if you should ever see her
you would certainly wind up dead
All of the townspeople of Athens
wanted Medusa to die
Far up on Mt. Olympus
The Goddess Athena finally heard their cry
Athena said to Perseus one night
Won't you kill Medusa tonight
Then how everybody loved him
As they shouted out with glee
Perseus you will go down in Roman and Greek History
For Mr. Martin's 2nd year Latin Class.
