The Woe of Polyphemus

Living a lonely life,
surrounded by my brothers,
a group of travelers came,
claiming there were no others.

When I asked, the leader spoke,
saying, with me, he wished to dine.
I just ate 2 of his men and slept,
after drinking all of their wine.

Then Nobody attacked me,
stabbing me in my eye.
My brothers came running,
as they heard my harpie-like cry.

After that had escaped,
did the leader shout his true name.
He was the warrior Odysseus,
who, through cunning, won much fame.

For my demanded vengeance,
upon my father, Poseidon, did I call.
The sea god answered me,
and much suffering upon the travelers did fall.
