The Rage Against Poseidon (RAGE TANKA)

The Rage Against Poseidon (RAGE TANKA)

A Poem by Marc Marlon Villaflor
"

We can't judge right away unless we know the backstory.

Her lips hex venom

Diabolic mind paints gore

Gives  horrific death

Crawling in the underworld

Rage is inexorable

I wrote this poem to give voice for Medusa one of the character in Greek mythology. I have this thought to give voice for her rage after Poseidon rape her and Athena turned her into a monster. I think she deserved a voice.

There is a based mythological aspect to this, (brought in though the title specifically, and then later on with use of "the underworld") that the captures imagination, and brings colour and visualisation to the fury and torment you portray. This said a lot, brought little - well done
