Diary of the Cyclops

Diary of the Cyclops, the One-Eyed Wonders
(A Warning for All)

You know who I am because my kind and I have ruled, haunted,
And conquered nations for over two millennia
The very weapons that defeated the Titans were gifts from me
I gave Zeus his Thunderbolt
Hades his Helmet of Invisibility
And Poseidon his Trident

I am the reason nymphs scream

My very existence is rooted in life and selfish pleasure itself,
consumption and devastation

I'm inbred and perpetuated through myths, lies and hard truths
Virtue is surrendered too willingly and when it's not, it's simply taken
I devour the flesh of harlot and virgin alike

While my preference is the taste of sweet maidens,
Hardened men and cherubs are all consumed in my quest of flesh  
So know this,

The next time you're thrusting about in a bed
Or up against a wall
Whether by force or forbidden lust
Or you've relented in loveless routine
Understand you've succumbed to the beast that is me
The one-eyed monster
I've pierced you now

Your flesh
Your soul
Your heart

With disease
Carnivorous rage
And blood letting

So once again you've been warned
Yet you will surrender, as you always have
And always will
