Vulcan approached Mars,

And warned him to keep away from his wife, Venus.

He prayed to the stars,

To help him against this Martian trespass.


''I will trap you,'' 

Vulcan said.

''I will slap you,

There in my bed.''


Mars in shining armour,

Paid no attention at all.

Coming out of his door,

Ready to go to the ball.


Venus, what a beauty,

Dressed for all to see.

Showed her great charm,

Then took Mars by the arm.


Vulcan said, ''You gods,

You have seen it now.

I will challenge Mars with rods,

And bruise his brow.
