A Modern Day Tragedy: Icarus Retold
Icarus doesn't listen to his father,
When did he ever?
"Do not falter, son"
"Oh, I would never"
And so, Daedalus sent his son on his way
If he had known that was the last time he'd see him
He would've made Icarus stay
He would've given a limb
Icarus was driving along
When he felt his phone buzz
He checked to see who it was from
As he normally does
If he had known his last text would be:
"Hey baby, don't worry! I'm the king!"
Maybe that would've been the key
To resisting the ring
Alas, Icarus lost his life that day
Out on the freeway
Leaving his father permanently impacted
