    Soon as Venus was born, the hair and wardrobe people went to work.

    /// No surprise, viewers eyes will all dwell

    on the pale naked girl on that shell.

    Of these scenes, there’s no dearth,

    showing Venus’ birth,

    yet, why not of the other three tell?

    /// There’s a twin to nude Venus who clings

    to the blowhard who floats with fixed wings,

    amid blossoms of pink

    which fall into the drink.

    Is her birth somehow helped by these things?

    /// The third look-alike stands on the end.

    She is clothed, and has fabric to lend

    to the goddess of love,

    but, when push comes to shove,

    it’s an offer she ought not extend.

    /// Every figure is part of the mesh

    which makes each new reviewing seem fresh.

    Her companions, unnamed,

    will not ever be famed

    as is Venus, displayed in the flesh.

    Whenever an artist comes by, Venus’ clothes just mysteriously fly off.

    Flora opened the clamshell packaging of her life size Venus action figure, not realizing the huge negative impact that would have on its future resale value.

    Not being shellfish, she let herself be painted au natural. She never did get royalties from Adobe for using her likeness…

    Alessandro D. Botticelli

    Is admired from Denmark to Delhi.

    Venus “on the half shell”

    Goes down rather well

    With a red sauce – but not with grape jelly..

    Lovely Venus, with long, flowing hair

    Of wolf-whistles garners her share,

    Count Heinrich’s coiffure

    Has equal allure

    (Though only when Heinrich’s not there).

    Cronus castrated Uranus and threw his testicles into the sea. Out sprouted a naked Aphrodite riding a giant shell. Yet Aphrodite would become the daughter of Zeus, who was the grandson of Uranus. Go figure, crazy Greeks.

    I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. So far, 5 works, attributed to this artist, have been used here.

    Hey naked daughter of Zeus

    A libidinous lass on the loose

    Factor in Aphrodite

    it all gets so untidy

    and ever so ripe for abuse..

    A girl and a God as a goose ?

    as absurd as a mouse and a moose !

    A babe and a bird ?

    it’s downright absurd..

    Try to make sense of that – what’s the use ?

    A babe on the back of a bull,

    Who’s a god – (and a man in full !)

    A bull from the sea…

    Doesn’t sound right to me..

    O’er whose eyes are they pulling the wool ?

    “Let us worship Aphrodite

    Though she can be kind of flighty

    And she doesn’t wear a nighty -

    She’s good enough for me.”

    Parody of “Gimme That Old Time Religion,” quoted by Joseph Campbell on one of his mythology shows
