Icarus - 2012/06/17

Barren and broken
Stones large and small lay
Crevices and cracks
Lay a path to escape today

Millenniums etched
Atom by atom slowly lost
Each rising sun brings
Less realization of cost

Upwards we do scurry
Fighting against the odds
Doing so in a hurry
Unconcerned with angry gods

Beautiful birds above
Gliding in the jet stream
Haughty by their nature
Yet the face of our dream

Then they do plummet
As stones tossed casually
We pay them no concern
Climbing with great glee

The throne sits empty
Only too willing to devour
He who still believes
In eternal unlimited power
