Some say it sits atop the highest mountain in Greece.
Others maintain it is far above the clouds,
where there never stirs a breeze.
Home to Zeus and other lessor gods.
Court is held and fates decided.
Hera his queen, votes with a definitive nod.
On Zeus' gold embellished, black marble throne,
is perched is a golden eagle with ruby eyes,
and on the seat, a purple ram's fleece is thrown.
Ivory was used to fashion a throne for the queen.
A full moon hangs above Queen Hera's head.
Golden cuckoos and willow leaves make it a sight to be seen.
Five more thrones line each side of the great hall.
One for each of the lessor gods,
to number ten in all.
From Mount Olympus, Zeus sends thunderbolts to shake the earth.
The magnitude of destruction can devastate,
so a wise man treads lightly and gives Zeus a wide berth.
