The One and Only Posideon
By: Brian B, Avery H, and Lauren S.
Poseidon vs. Athena
Posidean was represented by the Trident because he used it in the seas to spear fish and other sea animals to eat. Since he did this it soon represented him and the seas. It also represented Poseidon's power over the sea creatures and every other mortal figures.
Athena was represented for the owl for many reasons. The most common is that owls are was or humans precieve them as wise so it goes along with what she is the Goddess of. Another reason why Athena is represented to the owl is that they can see in the dark and turn there head 360º which could be said that would help as good battle stategy in war which another thing she is the god of.
Poseidon is powerful
Poseidon is often considered very powerful because he is one of the big three gods and is the god of earthquakes and tsunamis and drowning which can hurt and kill a lot of people.
Interview with poseidon
The inside scoop
Interviewer: Hi, we’re back here with Poseidon at his house on the ocean floor. So Poseidon how are you doing nowadays.
Poseidon: I’m fine Brian, but thank you for asking. I haven’t been that mad lately so there aren’t as much earthquakes.
Interviewer: Oh that is good Poseidon! Can you tell the viewers about how control earthquakes?
Poseidon: Oh, sure. Well when I am angry or frustrated about something I through my trident at the ground and it shakes the ground so much that up on land the ground shakes too which is called an earthquake.
Interviewer: Have you and the other gods gone to Mount Olympus lately?
Poseidon: No, there hasn’t much of anything to go up there and discuss about and I’m glad about it too because I don’t have to see Athena.
Interviewer: Why don’t you like Athena Poseidon?
Poseidon: Since I lost the competition to her for who would rule Attics now we are sworn enemies. I don’t know how we could possibly cooperate on making the Chariot together!
Interviewer: Oh, you too made the chariot together?
Poseidon: Yes, since I am the god of horses and she created the wagon part of the chariot to help in war we had to cooperate.
Interviewer: That’s enough talk about Athena we want to talk about you. So how are you reacting about Zeus still in power of all the gods even though he is your younger brother?
Poseidon: I will never get used to it, I’m should be there because the seas are way more important than the skies. But at least Hades isn’t the ruler then it would be all death every day and all he talks about is who died when and how who died.
Interviewer: Yeah, we all are glad for that. So how are your sisters today?
Poseidon: Well Demeter will always be sad right now since Hades took her prized daughter Persephone and now that it is winter she has to return to the underworld and Demeter can’t bear it so it’s another sad sad time for her. Hera is still having trouble with Zeus since he is flirting with other Goddesses and mortal woman but nothing will stop him from keeping away from the ladies. She is so upset about this though is because she is the god of family, but hers is breaking by Zeus cheating on her. And Hestia is okay, she is still avoiding men like athena and just keeping on with her business.
Interviewer: Oh, well that’s how it goes in the immortal world. Tell them that everything will always be alright and to keep on going on with their immortal lives.
Poseidon: Thanks I’ll be sure to tell them. Do you have any more questions?
Interviewer: Just one more Poseidon. How are all the sea creatures doing?
Poseidon: Most of them are fine, but lots of the mortals are throwing trash into the waters so my creatures are eating then and either dying or getting really sick.
Interviewer: Oh I’m so sorry I hope I can do something to help.
Poseidon: Thanks, but I’m afraid you can stop everyone on the earth from littering.
Interviewer: True. Ok, thanks for watching everyone tune in next time on channel 5 for Brian with the Gods, Athena edition.
