Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Odysseus Abridged

This song was created for Game of Bands round 102 : "Under 1 minute in length"


Oddyseus sails to save Helen from Paris
Swearing an oath to return within twenty years
Ten years of fighting outside Troy's walls
Then he builds a horse and so Troy falls

Poseiden's wrath for blinding a cyclops
A year spent feasting with the Goddess Circe
Sail by Charybdis; six-headed Scylla's fed
Shipwrecked alone, seven years in Calyso's bed

Arriving back home disguised as a begger
He proves who he is by stringing his bow
And then the traitors and would be usurpers
Are slaughtered and killed for invading his home
