Drabble: Greek Gods Go Golfing by Ken MacGregor

“Go ahead. Really smack it,” Hades said. Hercules put power into his swing, and the golf ball sailed over the horizon.

“That’s another bogie for Herc,” said Ares. He was always trying to pick a fight.

“I hate you,” Hercules said to the god of the underworld.

“Everyone does,” Hades said with a smile.

“I don’t hate you,” Aphrodite said. When she spoke, the men stopped and stared.

“Oh, that makes me so happy,” Hades said without a trace of sincerity.

Dionysus took a huge swig from a flask.

“I don’t know why we bother,” he said. “Zeus always wins.”

Author’s Note: I think gods are pretty much omnipotent children and I like to poke fun at them.
