Sisyphus was the founder, and King of Corinth. He was notorious as the most cunning unprincipled man on earth. Sisyphus greatest triumph came at the end of his life. When the God Hades came to claim him personally for the Kingdom of the Dead. Hades, had brought along a pair of hand cuffs, a comparative novelty. Sisyphus expressed such interest that Hades was persuaded to demonstrate there use on himself.
And so it came about that the High Lord of the Underworld was kept locked up in a closet at Sisyphus’s house for many a day. A circumstance which put a great strain on dying because death was knocked out of whack. Nobody could die. A soldier might be chopped to bits in battle, and still show up for dinner.
Finally, Hades was released. Sisyphus was ordered to report to the Underworld for his eternal assignment. But the wily one, had another trick up his sleeve.
He simply told his wife not to bury him. And then, he complained to Persephone, Queen of the dead that he had not been accorded the proper funeral honors. What’s more, as an unburied corpse, he had no business on the far side of the Styx (one of the five rivers in Hades) at all.
His wife hadn’t placed a coin under his tongue to secure passage with Charon the ferryman. Surely her Highness could see that Sisyphus must be given leave to make things right.
Kindly Persephone assented, and Sisyphus made his way to sunshine. Where he promptly forgot all about funerals, and such drab affairs. And lived on, for another good stretch of time.
After 9/11, Hades was determined to bring Islam to its eternal assignment. Hades captured Islam forthright. Knowing that Islam through out its history did not welcome the death of defeat.
Islam being a student of history from centuries trapped, and killed. Only to escape knowing it could be done again. So Islam appealed to the kindly Persephone. With Islam sending Allah to plead their cause. Allah said, it was customary for Islam to congratulate the winner. The Worldwide Confederacy of Jews and Christians. Persephone granted Allah its wish upon one condition. Upon congratulating the confederacy of Jews and Christians. Islam was gone in a flash, and Persephone never saw Islam again.
We’ll, time heals old wounds, some say. And sure enough, Hades began to admire Islam. He quickly recognized Islams deceptive skills. For in defeat, Islam flourishes as something its not, a religion. Hades knew that despite Sisyphus flare for dishonesty, and evil, he was no match for Islam nationally or internationally.
Furthermore, it took the underworld a longtime to secure a strong foothold in America. The underworld owned that to Islam. Islam, who was creating so much havoc, and evil in America, and abroad. Hades, and Persephone decided to give Islam some additional time to remake America, and the world community in the image of the Underworld.
