A set of haikus

Prometheus.

Children stood in awe,

Children stood in awe, Eyes fixed on the whirring dot,

Children stood in awe, Eyes fixed on the whirring dot, The helicopter.

Mechanical god,

Mechanical god, Defying the laws we made,

Mechanical god, Defying the laws we made, And the children cheer.

Deaf and blind to doubt,

Deaf and blind to doubt, Both flesh and steel caught in bliss,

Deaf and blind to doubt, Both flesh and steel caught in bliss, Glinting in the sun.

But too high it flew,

But too high it flew, The god becomes blasphemy,

But too high it flew, The god becomes blasphemy, Plunging to the sea.

Young screams fill the air,

Young screams fill the air, Dreams dashed hard upon grey waves,

Young screams fill the air, Dreams dashed hard upon grey waves, The god drowns in rage.
