Athena In Kiev

Athena added a third candle to her candelabra as the lights went out in Kiev

Athena the Greek goddess of wisdom was in a dark abandoned house in Kiev.

These days wisdom was not to be found in the Kremlin in Moscow, the White House in Washington DC, 10 Downing Street in London and was most definitely not to be found at blackface racist groper Justin Trudeau’s residence in Ottawa.

The same held true for every political residence in every capital in NATO and the European Union.

It especially held true at the Vatican where yesterday the satanic AntiPope Jorge Mario Bergoglio had pulled a publicity stunt seeking photo-op by driving to the Russian Embassy in Rome to beg the Russian Ambassador for peace.

The stunt backfired when it turned out the Russian Ambassador wasn’t at the Embassy at the time.

And of course ghostly soldiers had been drawn into the Ukraine-Russia War.

The ghosts of the Trojan warriors of Prince Hector of Troy were fighting on the side of the Ukrainians.

And the ghosts of the ancient Greek warriors of King Agamemnon of Mycenae were fighting on the side of the Russians.

Back during the original Trojan War the goddess Athena had fought on the side of the Greeks against the Trojans.

She especially favoured Ulysses the king of Ithaca.

But not this time around.

The ghost of Ulysses was on his own clutching a copy of a book by James Joyce and a Thesaurus Guide To The Idioms of the Irish English Language.

In this war Athena was backing the Ukrainians and thus their ghostly allies the Trojan warriors of Prince Hector.

Her own brother Ares the Greek god of war had likewise switched sides.

Back during the original Trojan War, Ares had (under the influence of his sometimes girlfriend and lover Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love) backed the Trojans.

This time around Ares was backing the Russians and thus their ghostly allies the ancient Greek warrior ghosts under the leadership of King Agamemnon of Mycenae.

Athena looked out the window and saw her brother Ares walking the streets of Kiev.

He was accompanied by Thor the Norse god of thunder and Morrigan the Irish Celtic goddess of war.

It was her understanding that Thor and Morrigan would likewise be backing the Russians.

This was interesting because Thor’s father Odin she had heard was on the side of the Ukrainians.

Walking behind the trio of Ares, Thor and Morrigan were Loki the demoniac Norse trickster god and his son Fenrir the fierce Norse wolf connected to Ragnarok the battle of the Final Days in Norse mythology.

Loki and Fenrir were likewise backing the Russians.

Poseidon the Greek god of the ocean was backing the Russians as he had supported the ancient Greeks against the Trojans during the original Trojan War.

Apollo and Artemis had not yet announced on which side they stood.

Zeus, Hades, Demeter and Hestia were planning to stay neutral during this Ukraine-Russia War as they had during the original Trojan War.

Athena closed the curtains on the street scene.

Then she thought she heard the sound of dancing.

Quickly she opened the curtains and looked out the window.

There dancing on the streets of Kiev was the Hindu god Shiva and the Hindu goddess Kali.

Whose side are they on, Athena wondered, if any?

    Thanks for the update Christopher.
    I’ve been stuck undercover here in
    Crimea awaiting further instructions
    from ASIO as to who’s side we’re on?
    The last communique said to await
    the Light Brigade and to keep my
    balaclava on so as to not be
    recognised by anyone, but nothing
    about the Red Army of Josef Stalin charging?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      The Charge of The Light Brigade and wearing your balaclava eh?

      Sounds like the sort of things that would inspire an Alfred Lord Tennyson poem.

      I imagine your brigade is able to keep their morale up by sampling the care packages that Uncle Ernie sends from back home in Australia.

      • David Redpath said,

        Uncle Ernie hasn’t returned from
        his trip to the Beijing Olympics.
        Apparently it was all work, as he
        was there as an envoy of the new
        exclusive Trade Federation, that’s
        comprised of Russia, China, and
        the Pitcairn islands, to be known
        as the Sino-Soviet-Pits. Cuba and
        North Korea have been invited, but
        they’re not stupid.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It sounds like Uncle Ernie is engaged in a mutiny amongst such a large bounty.

        Hopefully this isn’t a blight in Uncle Ernie’s eye.

        Better rye than bligh.

        Stretch, fetch and fletch a Christian sounds like Xi Jinping’s latest religious policy.

        The Sino-Soviet-Pits sounds like the pits all right.

      • David Redpath said,

        Uncle Ernie and Babylon Ho are
        up to something clandestine, as
        I heard them mumbling about
        rings of power, and being bound up
        in the darkness? I just thought they
        were referring to some of the fun
        and games they got up to at the
        Beijing Winter Olymics ๐Ÿค”
        Being an ASIO agent they’re not
        telling me a thing, as they think I
        can’t keep a secret.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I wonder where they’d get the idea that you can’t keep a secret. ๐Ÿค”

        I wonder if they’ll get to Mount Doom on their latest mission.

        Uncle Ernie might find it somewhat sore on the backside should he try to climb it.

        It might be another case of the Dark Lord like what happened in Joe Biden’s trousers when he met the Pope.

      • David Redpath said,

        I think that may be the actually
        reason Uncle Ernie arranged the
        inaugural meeting of the new
        trading bloc (or rather ‘trading
        block’ as the are blockheads),
        the Sino-Soviet-Pits 3, to be held
        on the island of La Palma ๐ŸŒ‹
        The Canary Islands are lovely this
        time of year ๐Ÿ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  2. Tanya said,

    I need some knowledge on Ancient Greek literature to really understand some of the analogiesโ€ฆ but whose side we are on remain the question. I guess world let the Ukraine down esp. govt. here in DC.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Tanya, the world let Ukraine down.

      NATO, the EU and especially the U.S. government.

      • Tanya said,

        I know, itโ€™s sad to see the situation ๐Ÿ˜ž. Iโ€™m disappointed with the govt. too. With covid, inflation last thing one wanted was war ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It’s as if the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the Book of Revelation of Saint John The Divine have suddenly arrived on the scene. ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

  3. Hyperion said,

    A very good analogy of the pantheons of old gathering once more for some diety monkey business. It seems, the West has found itโ€™s viagra and if they hadnโ€™t let all their extra small prophylactics dry rot in storage, they could stick it to ole Ras-Pootinโ€™s demonic bootie. Having a blue pill stiffy and no rain coat is a terribly frustrating ordeal. Iโ€™m sure they will work it out well enough in time.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      “There’s gold in them there brown coloured underwear of Joe Biden” many in NATO are undoubtedly hoping.

      • Hyperion said,

        At the meeting of the Western leaders conversing seriously on how to defeat Pootin without making him mad, there arises the draft of an Iโ€™ll wind, the odor of impending gloom. A true western who dunnit.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Senile Joe: I get the feeling I’m carrying a heavy weight with me.

      • Hyperion said,

        Herr Trudope: Yo, Joe, Bro! Are you taller or is that a ๐Ÿ’ฉ you sitting on? ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿคง๐Ÿ˜ท

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Joe: I’m not sitting on you, am I, Justin?

      • Hyperion said,

        Later in the news, Justin is shown wearing Brownface makeup!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        ROTFL! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ
