Perhaps one of the most famous men to have ever lived
Is the man now immortalized as a late season constellation.
Orion the hunter forever out on the hunt
Looking to repay the deadly scorpion.
But this man will never be left all alone,
For he has his two faithful companions always at his side,
Today called Canis Major and Canis Minor,
The two hunting dogs never run and hide.
These two dog constellations show how faithful dogs are
Even to death they will not depart
It is enough to warm even the chilliest heart.
Their master died by Scorpio’s sting
Still they did not leave him, and now every night they will bark
At the enemy that is forever so closely to them parked
