Prometheus

Prometheus

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!
