One of Odysseus' Men Transformed Into a Pig-Walters Art Museum

Austin Dobson’s poem, THE PRAYER OF THE SWINE TO CIRCE, has a great title and concept, but I consider the poem—uneven; it has some good lines but I’m not fond of others. The poem did give me an Idea, though. My fictional cult holds Circe, in high regard. Circe turned Odysseus‘s men into swine and my cult wouldn’t mind doing the same thing.

Homer failed to give names to the men changed into swine, so I’m going to name this one Ollie,as homage to Oliver Hardy.

The link to the poem is in the text above and the picture comes from the Walters Art Museum via the Wikipedia link below:
