KEEPING IT REAL by jjméndez

 Keeping it Real

Zeus declares his godly stance
under a moon-lit silvery sky.

Perseus beheads Medusa  
and turns evil into stone.

Thor pounds sharp-edged thunderbolts 
from his corner far to the north.

Quetzalcoatl spreads his wings 
and heads east promising to return.

Jesus yields bread from stones
and absolves the sinful of their faults.

Mohammad unifies  the sand dwellers
and restores faith in the elders.

Buddha smiles and sits quietly 
under his favorite tree…
