Persephone and Hades. Tondo of an Attic red-figured kylix, ca. 440-430 BC. Said to be from Vulci. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

If and when and maybe
Here’s the schemes that can be
Disturbing now the trinity
Where one plus two is not three

Three times three can be One
See the demons have fun
Here a daughter, here a son
Sacred maths has begun

Let the numbers relate
Open up the hidden gate
We can all commiserate
With those lost to such hate

If and when and maybe
Calling cards to Hades
All you gents and ladies
Just what choices made thee
