Poseidon Aesthetic

Poseidon, Greek god of the sea, was one of the most powerful of all of the gods in Greek mythology. He was one of the 12 Olympian gods and goddesses who held court on Mount Olympus - the mountain of the gods. Poseidon is the son of Cronos and Rhea, and brother to Zeus, Hades, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera. He, Zeus, and Hades divided the world into three ‘territories’; Zeus ruled over the Heavens, Hades ruled over the Underworld, and Poseidon ruled over the seas. Poseidon is often associated with bulls and horses.

Last came Anarchy: he rode
On a white horse, splashed with blood;
He was pale even to the lips,
Like Death in the Apocalypse.

9
And he wore a kingly crown;
And in his grasp a sceptre shone;
On his brow this mark I saw–
‘I AM GOD, AND KING, AND LAW!’

10
With a pace stately and fast,
Over English land he passed,
Trampling to a mire of blood 
The adoring multitude.

15
For with pomp to meet him came,
Clothed in arms like blood and flame,
The hired murderers, who did sing
`Thou art God, and Law, and King.

16
We have waited, weak and lone
For thy coming, Mighty One!
Our purses are empty, our swords are cold,
Give us glory, and blood, and gold.’

17
Lawyers and priests, a motley crowd,
To the earth their pale brows bowed;
Like a bad prayer not over loud,
Whispering – `Thou art Law and God.’ –

18
Then all cried with one accord, 
`Thou art King, and God, and Lord;
Anarchy, to thee we bow,
Be thy name made holy now!’

19
And Anarchy, the Skeleton,
Bowed and grinned to every one,
As well as if his education
Had cost ten millions to the nation.

20
For he knew the Palaces
Of our Kings were rightly his;
His the sceptre, crown, and globe,
And the gold-inwoven robe.

21
So he sent his slaves before
To seize upon the Bank and Tower,
And was proceeding with intent
To meet his pensioned Parliament

DRAMATIC HIDDEN VALLEY SCENE

Okay, he sees this girl that he spent some time in the desert in (HE’S IN A VERDANT HIDDEN VALLEY NOW???) and his first impulse is to paw the ground.

Seems legit.

Except I’ve only ever really seen pawwing behavior in horses that were splashing water, tied up and anxious, or stuck behind a fence and anxious. This horse isn’t tied up and he could easily run up to the girl. I mean, granted, he’s on top of this big hill and would have to make his way down, but it’s obvious he knows he way around the area, so I can’t see why it’d be an issue.

No, that horse is a black splash, man, get it together! black splash emo posers are not nearly as cool as black silver dapple tobianos

i’m so sorry for getting my horse facts mixed up. i hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. a black silver dapple tobianos is clearly not a 2006 emo poser, but rather a 2007 scene kid
