Medusa, Queen of Snakes

In the time of the Vedas
Sculptors shape idols in her likeness
Worship and pray to her
Her royal magnificence commands no less

Foolish men try to usurp her power
Cast her unseen into the shadows
Claim the glory of divinity for themselves
A false wizard playing parlor tricks

One look from her turns them to stone
