This double-dactyl was entered by Timarete Theocritos in a contest dated September 27, 1998, at The Tenth Muse before Ancient Sites folded. It's a shame that I do not remember who won. The prize was 2,000 sesterces!

Equine Mentors

Hoppity-Cloppity
Chiron the Centaur is
Mentor of Heracles,
Wizened and wise,
Teaching the masses, though
Perissodactylous,
Attend him carefully,
'Tisn't a disguise.
