Prometheus! The Most Enlightened-
Was the brightest of the Titans
Saw us stumbling in the night--
Decided that we needed Light!
Incurred the god's revengeful ire-
By stealing their great secret Fire
Up to Heaven one fine day-
Lit a torch from the Sun and ran away!
He gave this gift so me and you -
Could enjoy a summer barbecue
So food is not a dreadful bore-
We'd eat it cooked instead of raw!
He gave us Fire which did inspire-
Us all to seek for something higher
We learned to read and write and speak-
In poetry and books and Greek!
To build the City -
Found the State-To calculate and cogitate-
Invent philosophy and mirth-
Explore both corners of the Earth!
To pluck the harp and twang the lyre-
And found the world's first Grecian choir
Map out the heavens-study math-
Come home and have a nice hot bath!
Our forefathers were overjoyed -
The gods were fearsomely annoyed
Guess what they then went and did-
To this prominent Promethean kid?
The punishment was grim and dire- -
For stealing this great gift of fire-
They chained him to a rock -Absurd!!
Pecked at by a giant bird!
Henpecked for all Eternity-Prometheus alone
Nailed to a rock for all to see-
He is no "rolling stone"
How could this kindly Titan Giver-
Live without his precious liver?
Every night- despite the pain-
His liver would grow back again!
And every dawn of every morn
That eagle would return to pluck
His organ out and eat it up-
Oh Yuck o Yuck! What rotten luck!
Hail this noble Titan loner-he's the world's first Liver Donor!!!!!
