You come bearing healing, you kill souls with lies and compounds,
Raping women who know more than you but
Trusted too much when you turned our stomach in knots.
Watch the flight to Olympus, the Sun is coming back.
No longer hidden in the dark, locked in Zeus’s head.
Cisterns of spinal fluid dripping down into a vein,
Slept death dreams and lies and soul rape
Could not call home, was ET and MIA from the gods mount.
Persephone orbits in the Dark, showing four faces, she smiles many smiles.
Full, dark, waxing waning, oh dear, Mother’s wearing so many hats!
She cannot decide to put red with purple or green,
Seems mixed up, crazy!
Weaving reins from my kitten fur, I connect my horses
And ride into the corona with my sisters in Arms
To rule war justly, carrying Owl sword woven of cat gut and feathers,
Athena is born!
We have returned to Olympus, sister goddesses one
To shield the earth with our super powers of compassion and hope
Ending all nonsense of young boys and dolls:
The Matriarch Ascends
