In the end
the gods entirely missed the moment the mighty hero
overcome by hubris
propelled himself into an inevitable spiral of disaster
culminating in self-mutilation
the destruction of a great nation
and quite a lot of agonised soliloquizing
all of which would have far-reaching repercussions
and remake the political structure of several distinct societies
over the course of the next three centuries

Apollo had scored everyone Star Wars tickets
so understandably
divine attention was elsewhere
