Mystic Whispers: On the Half Shell

Out of the sea on rising foam
Venus emerges,
makes herself at home,

and the Gods all pause a moment to look
and admire and plan…
and their canny brains cook…

The Goddesses, too– they look and they see
a sister to them
and a rival-to-be…

For the proper attentions, there must always be,
to Wisdom, and 
to Fidelity.

And Discord smiles to see this birth:
Her job’s secure
forever on Earth!
