"You, Medusa, shall be punished," the great Athena said,
The girl replied, "Oh, no! Am I to be dead?!"
Athena laughed, "Ha, ha! Not even close, you foolish girl!"
The clever goddess left in a whirl.
This was the tale we were told as kids,
What if we found out it was realy a fib?
Athena did curse Medusa with snake hair,
But maybe her fate was more than just fair.
Medusa had been raped inside of a temple,
and snake hair is worse than a giant red pimple.
Now this hair would be all that men notice,
Medusa would never again have to be chosen.
