Eve, Cassandra, And Pandora At A Group Therapy Session

Eve: ‘I was deceived by a talking snake,

And Adam was deceived by me.

‘Tis such a sordid state of affairs.

Pandora, now don’t you agree?’

 

Pandora: ‘O I was Zeus’ vengeance upon

Prometheus, for having stolen the fire.

He gave me to Epimethius, whose jar 

Held misfortunes most dire.’

 

Cassandra: ‘Apollo did curse me for spurning his love.

The future I can clearly foresee. 

But although my visions are unerringly true,

O no one will heed them, you see.

 

All together: ‘Doctor, together we represent 

Some of mankind’s most ominous woes,

The changes of seasons, and history’s ills, and problems, and mishaps, and throes.’

 

Here is today’s prompt for DVERSE POETICS

    I love it! They certainly gel together for a group therapy session for being deprived of their own narrative in the larger scheme of things. The last stanza captures all that their individual and collective tales capture and suggest about our ‘humanity’.
