Hera hung her head
between her quivering knees
and from her feigned faint
screamed at all she pleased:
He’s off again,
creating demigods
for the mortals all
to stand agog.
How did he appear this time?
A swan? A horse?
You bestial whores,
no-nothing nymphs
and weak willed waifs!
You’ll never topple me
from my rightful place
in the clouds
at his side.
Besides,
his bastard brood
will never be true gods.

Hera
