Cursed by Athena, loved by Poseidon,
Her appearance is now meant to frighten.
Stone-turning eyes, hair made of snakes,
She is now the symbol of feminine rage.
Beheaded by Perseus, cheated by the Gods,
Her head’s now imprinted on Athena’s shield of bronze.
She did nothing wrong, just fell in love,
Alas, she paid the price for her terrible luck.
