A Divine Moral
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Prometheus! How did he offend?
His name, meaning forethought,
Offers the clue to what is taught
To us who witness his bad end.
Too much he thought prior,
Prioritizing parts of the world
Not to be partitioned, on the one hand,
And on the other, prescribing a script
For a life less the magic of
Embracing whatever may command
The attention of our selfless love,
In the now of each new moment
Unfolding into tomorrow.
His hands are bound with the intent
To teach us tolerance for all,
And the peace of mind we know
In using the power we have gained,
On renouncing the authority of the vain
And the foolish, averting the downfall
Of badness done with best intentions.
Dividing us from animals,
The fire he gave burns forest
Homes of animals and birds.
But we should be one with them all.
What priority should there be
When all has boundless beauty,
If only we gain the sight to see?
So the vulture ceaselessly
Devours his guts, just penalty!
