Prometheus Bound

Prometheus, bound by duty on Caucasus
cries out against his Titanic crimes.
Come, now, Son of Iapetus
You brought down Zeus by omission
and kept from the gods their very nutrition
forcing on them bare bones instead
and letting fate decree cruel Zeus dead.
Aquiline tortures rained down upon you
till Heracles took pity, and came to rescue.
But man, that bastard liar
thanks you for eternal fire
