The Olympian Light Shows

There are two types
of light shows
on Olympus.

The first type: the Sound Show.
When a blinding flash
like a huge strobe
blinds mortal eyes
for just a split-second,
coupled with
the crack of
a hundred thousand whips
in unison,
that is Zeus
throwing a tantrum.
And the waters that fall
are the tears of the gods,
feeling sorry for the mortals
who are at the receiving end
of Zeus's fit.

The second type: the Silent Show.
When you see Zeus's lightning bolts
being thrown around
from cloud to cloud,
backlighting their beautiful shapes
that is Zeus
throwing a party.
There is
no noise, not
even a single whip crack,
because this is an exclusive party.
No mortals are invited here,
and all the gods are either
dancing, and/or drunk.

*But after the light shows,
when Apollo's chariot rides
across the fields,
then spring the
golden caps.
These mushrooms
are actually ambrosia,
the food of the gods,
and for mortals,
their ticket to
the Silent Show.
