IT'S ALL GREEK TO ME!



I was there when 
the Minoans emerged in Crete,
the Mycenaeans arrived in Greece,

civilisation collapsed,

the Dorians invaded,

the colonies were founded,

Athens entered its golden age,
and the Hellenistic era 
emerged,
only to fall when the Romans came.



My table weighs heavy with myths

as I ponder another Bushmills tumbler.


I look at Plato, Saucero, Knifeo, Forko, Spoono,
and bang my head in boredom slumber.
