The Art of Tetman Callis Poems the new prometheus

the new prometheus

the last of the gods
lonely bastard
not content to create one batch of stalwarts prostrate in fear and hunger and worship
he created two more
an unholy trinity of religions to fight for ages over which of them is daddy’s favorite

and now he’s dying
but being a god he’s taking his sweet time about it
and taking as many as he can of his misbegotten children along with him
into the hell of his own creation

this could go on for centuries
he’s already on life support
his children await a new prometheus to come and pull the plug
