Book Six by Robbie and Jess - " The Fresh Prince of the Odyssey"

Now this is the story all about how

My life got flipped, turned upside down

And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there

I'll tell you how I became the guest of a land called Scherie

In North Ithaca born and raised

On the farm was where I spend most of my days

Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool

And shooting some guys with my spear outisde of the school

When a couple of guys said were up to no good

Started making trouble in a town called Troy

I got in one big fight and Poseidon got mad

And said you're never gettin' home unless you're dead

I whistled for a boat and when it came near

the Woodwork was crap and it had holes in the rear

If there was anything I could say it would be that this ride was severe

But I thought now forget it, yo home to my dear.

I crashed up to Nausicaa's house about seven or eight

And I yelled out, "yo, Athene! Help out a mate"

Looked at this city, I wasn't quite there

Just have to sit and wait as the guest round here...

Book 21 by Tori and Nathan - Sonnet of Book Twenty One

Bright Eyed Athene approaches the beggar,
and erupts with a smile thats mega.

Cunning Penelope annouces a godly task,
as the Suitors lay down their flask.

“String this bow and send it throught the axes”,
the beggar enters, prepares and relaxes.

One by one they fail to go the length,
all of them struggle to summon the strength.

Telemachus demands the beggars turn,
the beggar approaches and the Suitors churn.

As easily as a bard fits a string to his lyre,
Odysseus the brave aims and strikes with no fear.

From the signal sign of his old man,
The thoughtful Telemachus fights with a plan.
