Prometheus’ gift –

Was it blessing or curse?

Our homes to warm –

Or destroy.


Our meals to prepare –

Or unleashed to scare –

Our very beings with its –

Vengeful fury.


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.”
