The God Zeus

by Mark Edward Wilson

There once was a God named Zeus
Who had great powers who he let loose.
His father’s name was Cronos,
And what he did was a big no-no
He ate all his kids real fast,
But when Zeus was born he was last.
He was hidden by his mother to stay alive,
And Zeus had an idea so his siblings could be revived.
When Zeus grew up he had a plan.
He made some food to make Cronos a sick man.
Cronos threw up and the kids came out.
The kids defeated their father in a big bout.
And that is the story of the god Zeus,
who was smart kind and as strong as a moose.
