Medusa: A Modern Feminissssst

"You, Medusa, shall be punished," the great Athena said,

The girl replied, "Oh, no! Am I to be dead?!"

Athena laughed, "Ha, ha! Not even close, you foolish girl!"

The clever goddess left in a whirl.


This was the tale we were told as kids,

What if we found out it was realy a fib?

Athena did curse Medusa with snake hair,

But maybe her fate was more than just fair.


Medusa had been raped inside of a temple,

and snake hair is worse than a giant red pimple.

Now this hair would be all that men notice,

Medusa would never again have to be chosen.
