Day nineteen of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem about a creation myth. I chose to write about the mythology from ‘Principia Discordia’.
Principia Discordia describes creation,
Bow to our beloved goddess Eris,
Malaclypso the younger, our prophet,
Along with Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst.
We know that everything comes from the void,
Eris and her sister Aneris too.
Eris was born with seeds of many things,
55 years later her seeds took life.
Her sister Aneris was now jealous,
She did not have seeds like her sister have.
Aneris stole things claiming it was her’s,
Eris was sad but she kept giving birth.
Void was now angry, he sent a brother,
He would be called Sheogorath to Eris,
But known to Aneris as Jyggalag.
To us mortals he is Spirituality.
Eris is existence and disorder,
Aneris, non existence and order.
Their brother is doomed to go back and forth.
Once you reject everything, you’ll see truth.
