ALEXIS TSIPRA-CISSUS ABANDONS EU-ECHO — AND THE RETURN OF NEMESIS (a modern myth of Narcissus and Echo)

ALEXIS TSIPRA-CISSUS WAS A GOLDEN BOY AND EVERY GREEK DROOLED OVER HIM. HE THOUGHT SO WELL OF HIMSELF THAT HE WOULD NEVER LET ANYONE, MAN OR WOMAN, TOUCH HIM, BECAUSE IT MIGHT DIMINISH HIS GOLDEN STATURE.

BUT THEN ALONG CAME EU-ECHO, A VERY RICH SUITOR. AND TSIPRA-CISSUS TOOK ONE LOOK AT ALL THAT EURO GOLD – AND FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. SO TSIPRA-CISSUS LET EU-ECHO MAKE DESPERATE LOVE TO HIM, BUT AFTER EVERY TURN AT THE COUCH, DEMANDED AND GOT EVER MORE GOLD EUROS.

AND THEN A FATAL THING HAPPENED. TSIPRA-CISSUS WANDERED AROUND THE AGORA AND SAW HIS FACE REFLECTED IN THE SUNGLASSES OF ALL HIS GREEK ADMIRERS. ALEXIS WAS SMITTEN BY THE GOLDEN IMAGES – OF HIMSELF. AND HE RAN UP TO EVERY GREEK, MAN AND WOMAN, TO KISS THESE GOLDEN REFLECTIONS SHIMMERING IN THE MIRRORED SUNGLASSES – ONLY TO FIND THEM DISAPPEARED THE MOMENT HE REACHED THEM.

AND A GIANT WAVE OF ANGER AND VENOM CAME POURING OUT, BECAUSE HE COULD NOW ONLY LOVE HIMSELF AND HIS DOPPELGAENGERS MERELY TOYED WITH HIM AND THEN FADED AWAY. SO HE TURNED HIS VENOM AND ANGER ON HIS OLD LOVER EU-ECHO AND STOLE ALL HER GOLD AND RAN OFF WITH IT.

POOR EU-ECHO PINED FOR HER LOST LOVER; WOULD NO LONGER WORK IN THE FIELDS; WOULD NO LONGER STORE EUROS AWAY FOR THE WINTER; AND BECAME THINNER AND THINNER. AND, FINALLY, EU-ECHO LOST HER SHAPE, BECAME A SHADOW OF HER FORMER SELF AND THEN MELTED AWAY. ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS HER WEAK VOICE WHICH NO LONGER HAD THE POWER TO SPEAK HER OWN WORDS, BUT ONLY TO REFLECT BACK WHAT OTHERS SHOUTED OUT WHEN LOOKING FOR HER.

AND TSIPRA-CISSUS HOWLED WITH GLEE OVER THE DEMISE OF EU-ECHO.

WELL, FAIR IS FAIR AND ALL THE OTHER SUITORS OF TSIPRA-CISSUS BANDED TOGETHER AND CALLED IN NEMESIS TO TAKE REVENGE ON THIS GOLDEN BOY WHO CARED ONLY FOR GOLD EUROS AND HIS GOLDEN REFLECTION.

SO NEMESIS SAW THAT THE WORLD WOULD ONLY BE RIGHT IF THIS SELF-INDULGENT GREED WERE BALANCED OUT WITH SOME “WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND.” SO, SHE GAVE TSIPRA-CISSUS A GOLDEN – TONGUE!

TSIPRA-CISSUS LAUGHED WITH JOY OVER HOW STUPID NEMESIS WAS. AND THE GOLDEN BOY USED HIS NEW GOLDEN TONGUE TO BECOME DEMOGOGUE OF ALL THE GREEKS.

BEFORE TSIPRA-CISSUS THE GREEKS WERE FUN-LOVING PEOPLES WHOSE ONLY THOUGHTS HAD BEEN TO DRINK WINE WITH THEIR BUDDY DIONYSIS. OUZO WITH THEIR TOURISTS AND COZY UP TO SHEEP AND OTHER HAIRY THINGS WITH THEIR BUDDY PAN.

BUT TSIPRA-CISSUS TAUGHT THESE FUN-LOVING GREEKS TO BELIEVE THEMSELVES VICTIMS AND TO HATE ALL THINGS EUROPEAN. HE THEN TOOK HIS PEOPLE LIKE CATTLE INTO THE RUSSIAN PEN AND FOOLED THEM INTO BELIEVING THAT HE WOULD MAKE THEM AS WILDLY RICH AND SUCCESSFUL AS RUSSIA!

AND SO, THE QUESTION REMAINS – WILL TSIPRA-CISSUS GET HIS COME-UPPANCE IN A REFERENDUM FROM HIS VICTIMIZED GREEKS FOR DOING THIS TO THEM – OR DID NEMESIS MAKE A FATAL MISTAKE AND THE GODS OF OLD NO LONGER HAVE THE POWER TO PUNISH A DEMOGOGUE?
