Between the thighs of the twins
Castor and Pollux
This cold February night
He’s found a warm spot to rest
Depth Charge: These days Jupiter can be seen in the constellation Gemini, which consists of the twins by the same mother, but different fathers, Castor and Pollux, Zeus having fathered Pollux by assuming the shape of a swan and raping his mother Leda. Keeping their traditional family values alive, Castor and Pollux would go on to produce families of their own by abducting and raping Phoebe and Hilaeira. Rape culture: It’s written in the stars.
