The legend, redone for fun:
Orpheus was a god who strummed
the ancient lyre, and he was bummed.
The woman he loved above all ladies
got bit by a snake and sent to Hades.
Therefore he chased her down to hell
and played a concert there so well,
they said she could follow him home, if he
never looked over his shoulder to see
just where she was.
But sad to say,
he did look back, and she *poofed* away.
