What if the story

has been rewritten

to paint Medusa as a villain

if instead

she was a princess

a capricious fairy

or a goddess

What if man’s folly meant her end

an accident rebranded

as heroism

when Medusa prized her solitude

over noisy crowds and boasting

What if Medusa was a woman

without her snakes

and stony gaze

and myths were changed

to paint her with evil

so no one can know the truth – Caroline A. Slee
