Where Have All the Goddesses Gone?

When Mother Eve fell from Grace
Massacio's Adam turned his face

When Artemis' bow lost its sting
all the satyrs flooded in.

After Ix Chel's temple fell
hotels sprang up on Cozumel.

With Demeter despised, shunned
residual poisons leave us stunned.

With Aphrodite degraded, mocked
the porno business leaves us shocked.

With Sophia's radiance lost
can we continue to bear the cost?
