King Minos, this whole banquet is a farce.
You’ve brought us here to take it up the arse.
The legend of your bull falls far amiss-
This nonsense runs straight over precipice.
Yet no such luck, young lad, there’ll be for you;
My Minotaur shall gore your flesh straight through.
As children go, he’s been an aberration,
Of Pasiphae and bull collaboration.
When Neptune’s beast such hospitality she gave
I knew of such must issue be depraved.
Ariadne (aside to Theseus):
They keep the creature trapped in walls that maze;
On youths like you in batches does he graze.
All final qualms do swallow now and dread
The creature’s wrath–or mine; here, take this thread,
And after you have gored the creature’s head,
Use this to find your way to me–and bed.

“Life is a turnstile.
You stand in a file,
And waiting, you wile
While watching the dial
To join the big pile.”
“You live in denial
And lie with a smile.
Be bold; dare to rile,
Cross tile extra mile.
Now that’s a lifestyle.”

Your attitude requires control.”

To goat-accosting, shifty dwarf?”

That is our inn’s blanket policy.”

Dine and truckle,
Safety? Shuck all.
Then it chuckles.

You say I rob the cradle?
That merits no response.
It’s standard in my family:
Old uncles want new aunts.
