Father, did I give you pain, when I jumped from your forehead?

Are you proud of all the wisdom I gave the world?

Father, why did you eat my mother?

Was it because you were scared about my to-be brother?

Who would overturn you like your father,

And grandfather?

Did you even care,

when my step-brother, Hephaestus, god of blacksmith,

Tried to rape me?

Did you even care?
