Hymn to Apollo

Apollo was challenged by Pan the piper.

Syrinx Pipes against the Tortoise Shell Lyre.

The Flutes rustic sound pleased Midas’ ears.

A follower of the God of the Sheppard’s.
Then Apollo played the Tortoise Shell Lyre.

All else praised his performance as better.

So Apollo felt Midas no longer needed a ear.

For wrongfully choosing what he did hear.
