was and were a main attraction therein. Therein
afore though. There was
Approaching Delphi. Alexander the Great and his great
sized Army. Decided
to set up camp for a session with the Divine. Empire
building ran in His veins. And legs. Sword Gordian
as well. Well as
being named Alex 3rd of the Argead Dynasty. Born 356 B.C.
in the City of Pella.
He became King of Macedonia. Aged 20. Thus and so. Not
surprising his temper had not been
tempered within Our World. Legends seem to say. Also. That
’twas Zeus the Father of All Gods and not
Philip 2nd that fathered this Great One with Queen
Olympias. His Mum.
Being born of such Noble borne His upbringing was noble. Also.
as Tutor He had illustrious Aristotle teaching. Teaching
such as Literature, Medicine, Sciences and Philosophy. Too. To
Him was given Leadership of Macedonia when Father Phil
went off. To deal. With Byzantium. Matters deepened
when Phillip 2nd
ran out of seconds to Live. Thus no more. Did
Live Phil. Not a second more. Anymore.
Thus and so. A King at 20. Alexander
With an Empire to hold. Have. Build
up also. His mission became thus. So.
Battles more to Empire expand. More,
Battles more. To become. Greater.
A Great’s Quest Hairy Question…
Eventually,.. no Headloss either.
Thus and so;..
The Oracle’s Announced Advice to that Great Alex. Alexander
did so and thus query: “…Will I conquer the World.?.”
Was timely so stonily given as : “…You will be Invincible My Son…”.
Rather… servile Oratory therein.?. Perhaps.?.
One might say and yet. Yet
lest One forget this natural gassy scene. Went so
and thus. Rather…
it seems indeed. In deed.
‘Cos Alex the G.
had Her by that long and high Hair. Hair
unnaturally wrapped and bound
in One great fist. His.
Dragged her then and so through that
Divine Apollo’s lair. With lil’ ado… and great public attention.
Grabbing serenely stony Pythia by the Hair
catching Her so unaware… and a great
handful of Head Hair as well. At that.
Seat… unsuited to the great. One. Unseated
thus pious Pythia. Be. Seat
taken off in deed. Indeed
it was and so. Our World Legends
do so and say. Herein. Of Yore.
by Alex. the G. Get off. Right off
in deed. Great in deed. Was
Left Of Centre.
Right up and off her Pythia Seat. She… so just left. Right
Mt. Vent too. Went off. Off Alex the G. went as well. Rightly so
or not. To
off Her Head. Outside that is. In deed as well. As well
this was. Outside.
Outside. Of the Temple. Not in.
In case the Gods…
got too pithed… and greatly necked
i, Shiro do so and thus. Subtly and privately,
do publicly guess. Herein.
With his Lion Handled Great Gordian chopper…
Sword. Ways now Scabbard out high as well hanging
thus and so
above. Near the Begin. Of The Pythia. Neck
in so and fact. Was so. So
yes in deed,.. indeed the Pythia gave pity and obeisance
on this Great Act. Pithily
giving in to her senses gaseous and befuddled
perhaps,.. but thus and so
holding reckless Ways back with thus and so
no neckless attack. Greatly received. Therein.
Rather perhaps, not a Necklace swap,..
for a… Sword Great therein and thereof it seems.
May even have…
Pithed her pants perhaps soon too. To go anyways
as such is. Is
the Ways of Heroes and Damsels of Dreams
that is indeed. In deed.
Such goings on ongoing. On and on go.
Thus and so did that show of Greatness
Alex. went on and on
for a while more. More on
Heroes and Gods, Battles, Legends and Divine
On and On and on
and so forth. And so on. More on. Moreover
The High-Priestess Naturally got back on high…
Seat retaken soon enough
and so thus and again. For a lil’ longer.
Lived to gassily orate this and that Great Tale
Tall and True

appreciate the inventiveness of Hero of Alexandria
