What color were Medusa's eyes?
No living man can tell,
Who heard the hiss of her snaky hair
Before he looked on Hell...
Nor was Medusa one, alone;
THREE Gorgons lurked in that pit
Surrounded by statues, petrified
Before they could scream "OH, SH--"
Three shapely, scaly bodies writhe
In weird, seductive dance...
Three hissing voices, whispering
"You haven't got a chance..."
Was Perseus brave or just plain dense
To go into their lair?
I don't believe that he was real;
Medusa is still there...
