Odysseus and his men reach an island. Odysseus wants to find out who lives in the cave they found. They wait for the owner to come back home.
"Nobody" is hurting the cyclops.
"Nobody, Nobody is hurting me!"
The owner of the cave is a giant cyclops. The cyclops gets really mad because Odysseus and his men are taking his food and want a gift. The cyclops takes two of the men and eats them alive!

Later in the night the cyclops ate 2 more men. Odysseus had a plan. He give the cyclops really strong wine to get him drunk, and tells him his name is nobody. When the cyclops is passed out, they will take a stick they sharpened and stabbed the cyclops in the eye with it.
Escaping the cyclops and heading back home.
"My name is Odysseus! Ruler of Ithaca."
The other cyclops come to see what is going. The cyclops says "Nobody, Nobody is hurting me!" So the other cyclops says "Okay, I guess nobody is hurting you." The other cyclops leaves.
Is someone hurting you?
Odysseus now has a plan to get out of the cave. The next morning, Odysseus and his men are tied under the cyclops' sheep. The cyclops pets the top of the sheep before letting them out, to make sure the men don't leave. The men make it out of the cave without the cyclops finding out.
Odysseus and his men board the ship and are on their way home. Odysseus has to brag. So, Odysseus says "I'm Odysseus, ruler of the Island of Ithaca." The cyclops throws the top of the mountain in the water and It almost wipes out the ships. The cyclops is the son of Poseidon. So he prays to his father that Odysseus would have a rough journey home.
