Hey there people!



Made this rhyme, not too long ago. On what could be the possible reason on how Olympus fell.

I was wondering, for the ones who read it and have greater knowledge than me on "Greek Myhtology". If they could let me know, in order to adjust the indescrepencies.

Second, let me know what you think of it! And take part in taking this to a philosophical level.


Thanks for taking the time and have fun reading!


Olympus has Fallen.



As the titans forged the world.
A nova of light, hurled.
Like a hammer on anvil striking
Sea and Sand, dividing.

Onward the first dawn of light,
A terrace arose to godly height.
Mount olympus this day, born.
The gods to Titans in loyalty, sworn.

Also to the world introduced.
Flora and Fauna, which the gods amused.
One race destined to evolve.

Zeus, the ruler of Mount Olympus and king of the gods; god of sky, weather, thunder, lightning, law, order, and fate; had held a banquet in celebration of Peleus and Thetis' marriage, them being the parents of Achilles. Eris, however, was not invited since she would make the party unpleasant for everyone - being the goddess of discord.

Eris was angered by the rude snub, of course, and arrived at the party with a golden apple from the Garden of the Hesperides, the word "Kallisti" inscripted into it, meaning "for the fairest". Three goddesses claimed the apple, they were: Hera (queen of marriage, women, childbirth, heirs, kings, and empires); Athena (goddess of wisdom, warfare, battle strategy, heroic endeavour, handicrafts, and reason); and Aphrodite (goddess of love, beauty, and desire). Zeus, reluctant to favor any of them as the fairest one, chose Paris (Trojan mortal) to judge the cases.

Overall the story ends with the beginning of the Trojan war.

Medusa,
In Greek mythology Medusa (Greek: Μέδουσα (Médousa), "guardian, protectress")[1] was a Gorgon, a chthonic monster, and a daughter of Phorcys and Ceto.[2] The author Hyginus, (Fabulae, 151) interposes a generation and gives Medusa another chthonic pair as parents.[3] Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone. She was beheaded by the hero Perseus, who thereafter used her head as a weapon[4] until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.The three Gorgon sisters—Medusa, Stheno, and Euryale—were all children of the ancient marine deities Phorcys (or Phorkys) and his sister Ceto (or Keto), chthonic monsters from an archaic world. Their genealogy is shared with other sisters, the Graeae, as in Aeschylus's Prometheus Bound, which places both trinities of sisters far off "on Kisthene's dreadful plain":
Near them their sisters three, the Gorgons, winged
