pierides

.

silly mortal girls,

challenging the immortals

your father was proud

but you were stupid,

and the muses nine made you

chattering magpies

.

note: nine princesses, all sisters, named after the muses. their father bragged about them being even better than the muses, so they (the muses) challenged the mortals to a singing contest. the pieredes got their asses kicked and then, for their impertinence, were turned into magpies.

note2: it has been proved, time and time again, that challenging gods is a really sh*tty idea.
