Fire

flames background
When the nights were cold
And the earth not so old
Prometheus gave us fire
And faced the greek god’s ire

Humans we became, from savages and beasts
The deer was cooked before we eat
Day in night, we managed to create
Evolution occurred at a faster rate

Fire fueled our hunger
And hunger fueled our fire
And thus began the circle
Of never-ending desire

It fueled our lust
For heavenly dust
And helped to create
By melting states

The future has come near
Which the gods feared
From the age of sticks and stones
Have reached the stage of nuclear drones

And though the gift of fire
Made ‘humans’ of us all
It still remains to be seen
If we answer to a higher call
