Men Of Prometheus Such Is Their Fate... - Poem by Marie-Sophie Geoffrey

Mistrust and hatred
Follow the men who
Clamor for change and
Call for a break with ancient tradition...

Giants, they call for
Effort titanic
People they find
In cowering fear
Tremble and quake...

They lay them in fetters
prey to, exposed to
Weather and vultures...

Brooding and sullen
Blood drips from torture
Hearts feeling the longing of life.

Cry out o heavens, in anguish!
All eyes were raised
All hearts paused hushed

Atheist prayed..
Time falling in cadenced doom, inexorably.
