Prometheus’ gift –
Was it blessing or curse?
Our homes to warm –
Our meals to prepare –
Or unleashed to scare –
Our very beings with its –
Be it a Pudding Lane Bakers-
Who charred London by acres –
Or O’Leary’s cow with –
Chicago’s most unfortunate kick.
The fires kept coming –
And even now with new plumbing –
We’re still not fully in control –
Of Prometheus’ tricks.
Haunted Wordsmith Prompt “The fires kept coming.”
One thought on “Prometheus’ Gift”
Fire is one of those things that humans arrogantly think they control. You’re asking the right question.
