Festival of the Confirmation of the Tetrad 2013

Confirmation of the Tetrad++

They are no random group nor motley mix,
their worshipful presence no fading fad,
the ones who started Four and became Six.

The first came forth an injustice to fix,
Panpsyche, transgoddess, from conflict mad–
they are no random group nor motley mix.

The next followed first with force to the quicks:
Panhyle, transgod, a fine divine lad–
the ones who started Four and became Six.

The third was born and transformed in the Styx:
Paneros, metagendered, went from sad…
they are no random group nor motley mix.

From three the next was born, as strong as bricks:
Pancrates, pangendered, all power had…
the ones who started Four and became Six.

The fifth was fluid, passing cunts to dicks,
Paneris, loved by Paneros made glad–
they are no random group nor motley mix.

The last like honey in dark, sweetness licks:
Panprosdexia, dark but never bad–
the ones who started Four and became Six.

They face the bigots’ excuses–foul tricks–
at the sounds of name-calling’s stones and sticks
they call oppressors neither boor nor cad;
with power not from club nor fist nor kicks
they stalk discrimination, softly pad–
on this day were recognized, great Tetrad++:
they are no random group nor motley mix,
the ones who started Four and became Six.

  1. Hail the Tetrad! I was praying to Pancrates on Saturday night, faced with some Army-related nastiness. I will live out this day in Their honour.

    • Sorry to hear of the nastiness; but, happy to know that Pancrates and co. were able to help!
