Iced Espresso With A Straw

In another world (hmm..) after or before
he was aloof diverging in a 4x4
her hair of Medusa in his fingers tangled,
smiling Hercules loved and wrangled;

Chimeras distracted him sly to finagle,
Tartarus was a sauce spread on a bagel;
sneaky Harpies stole his yummy breakfast;
as he visioned a Naiad of an aquatic caste.

An austere philosopher drinks coffee,
in a vast sincerity, stirs in a toffee;
Gorgon rushes threatening, with a chomp,
chews his hair relentlessly in a romp!

With half hair desperate, prays to Apollo
his students God Dionysus, in bars follow;
wise Apollo sends Hebe to treat him but
she offers him wisely a marine hair cut.

Now the philosopher becomes Theseus,
fair Ariadne is a Nymph, blessed by Zeus;
her mane tangled in his tips, he thinks;
an iced espresso with a straw, he drinks;

His 4x4 takes him to a temple of Poseidon
while in air epic comes, music of Haydn;
Medusa's hair waves on his windshield,
her Siren song enfolds him, on Attica field.
