Cronus Ate His Children

Wed, 10/02/2019 - 13:14 -- mlgov99

In pristine marble structures

that remind him of home

 

The mighty Titan sits

with other mighty men

 

They speak of weapons

They speak of guns

 

He holds his sickle

the Reaper's blade

 

The god of time

thinks of semi-automatics

 

Mad with power

Persuaded by pride

 

Cronus ate his children

and now these men eat theirs

 

This poem is about: 
My country
