'Tis mighty, the burden of titan on high
Who bears in the West, the weight of the sky.
Eternal his strife and labor his deed,
Punishment for his transgressions and greed.
Would Gaia in fact be crushed as a bug,
And heavens crash down should shoulders he shrug?
Gaia and Ouranos once did so meet,
And titans were born in their passion and heat.
Some stay in power with Atlas's aid.
Should titans arise, would gods be obeyed?
If only, O' Atlas, your shoulders you'd shrug,
To Tartarus soon would these old gods be drug.
Is this the way, or is there another?
An answer may lie in tale of his brother.
Curséd the titan who brought forth the flame
What right do mere mortals from gods have to claim?
Who'd dare see a creature so low aim so high.
Reaching together... could they reach the sky?
Gods who so fear this surely did chain
And torture Prometheus... Eagle his bane.
Residing in East, awaiting his day.
Break now his bonds, and he'll lead the way.
Together as one let us harness his gift.
Humanity stirs and the heavens uplift.
"Shrug now my brother. The gods we may beat,
Uplifted by those who stand at your feet."
