Seafarers and seekers of bounty and boon
Had always known the beauty that resides
in the seas of Aegae.
The Nereids of the Lord of the Seas,
Moved with flair, with tang, surf and seaweeds
Flirted, fascinated and fought alongside with the sailors.
Among the mortals dared to rival the nymphs of the sea.
Her beauty indeed shone vividly against the waves of the shores of Æthiopia,
And her eyes ablaze with fire and cheek.
None could ever compete the beauty of Cassiopeia
Says she as she marveled herself on her throne overlooking.
Her words of gall were washed away by the waves,
Riptides brought them to the Lord of the Seas
Enraged by the boast, he brought Cetus the beast
To flood the glorious city to its last gasp for breath.
Only the blood and flesh of her dearest
Andromeda, could only appease the beast
The wise oracle’s behest to the
Stripped and chained on the edge of the Sea,
A mighty Perseus unshackles
The sacrifice that is the fair “Ruler of Men”
And struck the beast with the music of the harpe.
Amused not, this Sea Lord,
Took the pretty queen to a seat
Cuffed her to see her lovely throne
Only in a fashion of a turned world.
A mirror to her right and a leaf to her left.
She was shackled by the Lord of the Seas.
To her vanity and fame.
Only to see herself marveling at the taint.
