Olympian Breakfasting

Venus came to Athens, thence from there to Rome, [Apsley]

Changed her name from Aphrodite, and forgot her ancient home [Beefy ]

Forgot her ancient habits, started dressing like a nun [Roland]

Thence travelled on to Paris to seek out her long-lost son [Beefy ]

She started in the Tuileries, and thence to far Versailles [Roland]

Scouring every alley in the hope that by and by [Beefy ]

His doleful physiognomy would glimmer through the haze [Roland]

For she knew that she would find him... one of these foggy days [fester]

Yet long weeks passed [Roland]

And hope grew dim [fester]

No dies were cast [P]

Wait! Was that him? [fester]

Or was it Orpheus...? [Apsley]
