*Jupiter is a mythological invention ( the so-called god, to clarify ) and has no basis in reality. It's there for illustrative purposes only.
~ Sequitur ~
They formed a band and sought the sky,
To witness heaven’s distant eye;
A peeking torch, behind matt cloud
Sol clock, which chimed, behind this shroud, that
Winked another second missed, to
Check the sundial on their wrist.
Now who’d be late for Emperor’s new clothes,
Time’s unseen rags, in which reposed,
An elephant, standing in the room,
Who danced to no one else’s tune?
As thunder cracked, and hail she whipped
Old faces, with their youth been stripped, in
Sleeting gales of cold sojourn,
‘Mongst changing abstract, quickly learned,
Why fired gimlet ‘pon their stern,
No longer gave a pleasing burn.
Whilst fate deformed, harsh weather stormed,
Celeste Karate, 'pon the hearty;
Men wondered if they should alight,
Or sail through masks of onyx night.
Swift day had sunk ‘neath hidden jars,
Replaced, by distant Northern stars;
Fleet Seven Sisters’, ancient Plough,
Now steered drunk sailors, did not know
To read coarse nature’s, altercation,
Which fought their futile destination.
They paid no heed to earthly signs,
Lashed violent winds, nor broken lines,
So *Jupiter’s trident, waved his sea,
Pierced, swallowed, the Emperor, elephant; thee.
