Four Gods

Twenty-fingered, four-armed God, a self-congratulatory ritual in celebration of birth. Every year, rain.

Dainty, wisp-decorated Goddess, flagrant display of breasts in paintings. Bosom indicates abundance and motherhood of nature. New government questioning tastefulness of nudity. Famine plagues country for three years.

Rattle-headed, six-fanged God. No function still. Designation pending. Pastime campaigning for devotees. Soapbox donated by eccentric businesswoman. Current situation maudlin, banging head against cage.

Fire-eyed God. Moon-faced God. Sly-lipped God. Gender designation not applicable. Avatar form. Outcast. Fire and ice. Further strategy debated. Popularity poll – public approval increasing. Television offers refused.
