The Green Man and Gaia

The young man and young woman splashed in the fountain in Rome.

They looked down into the water of the fountain and saw a man with a green face with leaves, branches and vines sprouting from his ears, mouth and nostrils rising up out of the water and grabbing them.

. . .

It was an unknown ancient grotto in the City of Rome.

There was an altar there to the Ancient Greek earth mother goddess Gaia.

Cardinal JM, a member of Rome’s Sacred College of Cardinals who unknown to his brethren worshipped the gods of the Ancient Greek pantheon in secret, bowed to the image of Gaia.

The spirit known as the Green Man dumped on Gaia’s altar the unconscious bodies of the young man and young woman he had grabbed from the fountain.

“Many thanks for your help, spirit,” Cardinal JM threw the Green Man spirit an ancient gold coin bearing the image and superscription of Antiochus IV Epiphanes the Syrian Greek king whose desecration of the Temple in Jerusalem led to the revolt of the Maccabees.

Cardinal JM then tied up the young man and young woman.

He then prayed to Gaia asking forgiveness for the many offenses humanity had committed against her.

He then took a knife and slashed the throats of the young man and woman.

He sprinkled the blood on the altar as an oblation to Gaia.

He then burned the bodies as an act of thanksgiving to Gaia.

Cardinal JM then walked back home to his apartment in the Vatican.

On his way back home, he ran into his personal secretary Father Oliver Thomas Wardenclyffe who was just leaving a gay nightclub.

“I wasn’t so lucky tonight,” Father Wardenclyffe sighed, “I should have used Grecian Formula For Men. Today’s young gay men don’t seem to be too impressed by fifty shades of gray.”

“I suppose not,” Cardinal JM shrugged, “after all Fifty Shades of Grey is about heterosexual S & M isn’t it?”.

A meteor flew across the night sky over Rome.

Both men lost in their own personal thoughts did not pay attention.

To be continued.

    Sinners night … just out from the Gay Club this night!

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, straight from the gay club.

      Although Cardinal JM and Father Wardenclyffe have none of the redeeming characteristics of Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas.

      • Sherrie de Valeria said,

        Oh yes … they must be such a brilliant combination. Although I think that Lord Alfred speaks wayyyyy to much and too long … 🙂

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, after all Wilde was by far the wittier of the pair.

      Lord Alfred should have kept silent and forever held his peace.

      Of course Whistler the painter did occasionally upstage Oscar and Wilde said, “I wish I’d said that.”

      And Whistler replied, “You will, Oscar, you will.”
