21st century Greek Gods
Mount Olympia was sold by Zeus after the Wall Street crash
Seemed like the great depression even reached the gods
Though no longer infamous, being incestuous was still news
Hera filed for a divorce after featuring on the OK magazine
She's now editor of dating pages on the local news
Apollo, the eldest and most handsome son
After years of modelling for a niche market
Swapped the lyre for the heavier bass
Revived his cult following,
once he even flashed out the laurel for the old-times
but his brother Ares
Signed up for the first world war, got burnt
Denounced his title and went travelling
Little Artemis lost her virginity in 1963
Liberated the thousand year chastity in a commune
Her daily routine involves changing nappies of smelly babies
As for Hermes, he's worker of the year
At the post office, handy shoes with wings.
Oh yeah Dionysus, what a joker.
He's doing time for drink driving.
