A Poem by Chris

A message to Zeus from his successor— dearly.

This is my love
This is my life
This is my fire
Sent from the heavens

Come now vulture!
Tear out my mortality!
Make a God
More than a king
That is master to none

He thinks I am chained
Yet my soul flickers free
In the hands of humanity
Cherished as life

Let lightning strike this peak
So his failure can be illuminated
Electrified and alive
I am Prometheus!
Servant only to the hearth!
