Poseidon was god of the sea, earthquakes, storms, and horses and is considered one of the most angry, moody and greedy Olympian gods. He was known to be angry when insulted for example when he blinded the Cyclops Polyphemus because his father, Odysseus, had made fun of him. He is the son of Cronus and Rhea and was swallowed by his father along with Hades,Demeter, Hestia and Hera. However, in some stories it is believed that Poseidon, like Zeus, was not swallowed by Cronus because his mother Rhea who hid him among a flock of lambs and pretended to have given birth to a colt, which was eaten by Cronus instead.
We, as a species have a hard time admitting when we are wrong.How do you live with something that has no cure?

However, Zeus saw the two sides of the gods’ feelings towards Odysseus. “‘Great Odysseus/ who excels all men in wisdom... it’s the Earth-Shaker, Poseidon, unappeased,/ forever fuming against him..’” (1.78-83). Zeus created an equilibrium so that Poseidon could take out his anger on Odysseus through punishment, and Athena receives the duty of making sure Odysseus gets home to Ithaca.
Poseidon exclaims to Zeus, “Zeus, Father, I will lose all my honor now / among the immortals, now there are mortal men / who show me no respect—Phaeacians, too, / born of my own loins” (Od. 13.145-48)! This exclamation shows that the act of tending to every needs and granting hospitality to anyone has offended Poseidon and he wants retribution against the slight made by the Phaeacians. Zeus replies to
After being trapped with his men inside the cave of Polyphemus, the cyclops, Odysseus uses his metis to devise an escape plan. Odysseus and his men carve out a stake and stab Polyphemus in his only eye while he is passed out from drunkenness. Moments after this task is carried out, Polyphemus prays to Poseidon by bellowing, “Hear me Poseidon...grant that Odysseus...never reaches home. Or if he’s fated to see his people once again...let him come home late and come home a broken man- all shipmates lost…” (Homer 228).

While Odysseus and his men were leaving the island of Thrinacia they were hit by a thunderstorm. “the son of Saturn [Zeus] raised a black cloud over our ship, and the sea grew dark beneath it.” (Homer). Zeus struck down upon Odysseus’ ship because they had disrespected Helios by consuming a couple of his sacred cows which didn’t make him happy. Helios reported them to Zeus demanding that they be punished for their actions and Zeus complied by killing everyone but Odysseus.
Here we came upon a cave full of sheep and crates of milk and cheese. The men advise me to snatch some of the food and hurry off, but, unfortunately, I decided to linger. The cave’s inhabitant soon returned, and it was the Cyclops Polyphemus, son of Poseidon. He made a show of hospitality at first, but soon turned hostile. He devoured two of my men on the spot and imprisoned us for future meals.
Introduction of Speech I. I spent the early half of my childhood like any other kid, outside playing, jumping in puddles, having an excess of energy that no one could contain.
