Crown of Delusion

My poetic thought s on the coming President's Day, and all the kings, from greco-roman time to the present, descended from Prometheus.
All descended from Prometheus
Each bold warrior defying heaven
shaping becoming his law
ruled by deception
dependent upon deceiving himself
He dips lower
twig brushing its brief face
into the stream of time

What is altered or created
Prometheus are you the world
Do Gods fear you
may storm Heaven again
steal from their abundance
hording your scarcity
worshiping paper
denominating sad

Stern dead faces
sink lower into the stream
mighty leaf
see the impact you've made
your fires
are extinguished refusing
to kneel before anything save
your Crown of Delusion
