Hine-nui-te-po


Hine-nui-te-po: "Great woman of the night", Polynesian Death Goddess

Great woman of the night
you brought death to this world.
Every human is born from a woman's womb,
and in death is swallowed by you into the grave.


The idea of immortality was so tempting to Maui
that he climbed into your vagina to try and reverse the process.
But your vagina's flinty edges snapped closed
killing Maui in a thunder of sparks and lightning.

What a way to go Maui!
