She came to me, seductively teasing,
A promise on her lips,
Of a night full of pleasing.
I tossed and turned, spurning her advance,
Yet she crept right over,
Waiting patiently for her chance.
She coaxed me out to a meet with Morpheus,
The god of dreams; with a gentle touch,
And so began my lesson with Prometheus.
I sat beside him whilst he planned his escape,
After handing man Fire, he had Zeus to hate,
Alas I too witnessed, him meet his gruesome fate.
Then I was whisked off to a gory battle,
Waged on the bloody beaches of Troy,
Only to keep the gorgeous Helen from a Boy.
And so I went through all of Greek history,
Chapters of characters coming to life,
I finally had enough for my assignment file.
At last we part after that long and adventurous night,
As I shrug and wake to the morning bell,
Abuzz with ideas and new stories to tell.
