Day 21 – myth retold

The challenge was to retell a myth or fairy tale from another character’s point of view.This has taken me so long to do and it’s pretty rubbish – sorry! Just trying to catch up again so I’m posting it anyway.  Nuff said.

Ariadne
So my dad was like, “You have to watch
the latest tributes coming to the docks”
and I was, like, meh??? But then
there he stood, this hunk, Theseus,
ripped torso glistening in the sun.
He said he was a prince, a proper sort,
and I’m a princess, so we’re mint, I thought
but then it all kicked off and I went crazy
when it turned out dad was sending
him into the goddam maze!
The lush hunk of beefcake I ever saw
and dad was feeding him to the Minotaur!
For the first time, it was time to use my head,
so I bribed the guards and smuggled him some thread.
Long story short – he tied it to the door,
found the bull and killed it with his sword,
then, bronzed with manly sweat, finally
followed the string right back to *swoon* me!
I’d like to say it ended happily,
but I snoozed, he lost, and sailed on his way.
