Several days ago I posted a haiku about Cronus. I had meant to make a news post about it.
I finally remembered to do so. Check it out here:
This is somewhat after-the-fact, but I had originally intended to post this.
Cronus is not to be confused with Chronos. Chronos was the primordial god of Time, where as Cronus is the Titan father of Zeus. The fascinating thing about Cronus is his approach to problem solving. He used a sickle to castrate and depose his father, Uranus, thus assuming the role of leader of the deities. It is later prophesied that Cronus’s son will do the same to him. He is understandably upset by this, so he decides that something must be done to prevent this inevitability. His solution? Eat his children.
But Zeus is hidden away and understandably upset by all the sibling-eating. So he deposes his father and becomes the head Olympian.
