Full CircleI pray to you now, if you're so inclined
To lay upon my poor old plundered mind
Every legend that has ever been told,
Every hero and all of his glories of old.
From Enkidu with Nisaba's hair,
Then Beowulf gone to Grendel's lair,
And Perseus who escaped the Gorgon's eyes!
Now, to drink of Lethe would be most unwise,
Lest I forget Jason and the dragon's teeth,
And Arthur drawing sword from sheath
Against he who was born from she Le Fay,
Poor King lived not to see another day.
Achilles then and the long war with Troy,
Orestes, almost murdered when just a boy.
Dante and his slow descent into icy Hell,
And Sita's Rama with Ravana to quell.
Then finally Heracles and his labors twelve,
Into all these tales I would delight to delve!
Now then hero's journey, full circle come,
Until every earthly glory has been won.
