I am the god Hephaestus
I’m the one god most forget
Even my wife Aphrodite
Often forgets that we are wed!

One thing unique about me
Is the fact that I’m disabled
But when it comes to making things
No god is as able!

I made Zeus’s thunderbolts
And the twelve golden thrones
Achilles’s armor! Athena’s spear!
I even built their homes!

For atop the Mount Olympus
I am known as the god of fire!
For I will work in my workshop
Until I am real tired!

For when the gods are in great need
They call upon my skill!
For no god works as hard as me
And there’s nothing I can’t build!
