Presentation for the Gorgon


Medusa

Oh priestess
hiding behind
the mask
of the
goddess
mortal woman
Athena transformed
into a
gorgon
golden winged
with lizard scales
and hair
of vipers
blood spilt
sends forth
snakes
to every
corner of
the earth
one look
upon your
face turns
a man
to stone.

Megan,This wowed me! I think I'll hunt down the sherrif and hide behind him...

A face to face meeting with Medusa must be avoided at all costs!

The face, eh, I mean heads, up is much appreciated.

Love,
Audrey

Whoa, that's some picture--and we all lived to see it. Then again, maybe we're not still alive. We could just be ghosts and undead from Anita's cemetery and we just don't know it yet.

I don't think I've been turned to stone - on the other hand, it is a sunnt day and I am feeling very, very cold...

Ah! You knew her true identity before you entered the Gorgon's chamber. She was unveiled for you. Your knowledge will keep you safe during the coming journey.
