Embrace Dionysus

Embrace Dionysus

Strange how they kill Dionysus

Instinct has privileged desire

Animal transformed into vegetable

Denying Prometheus: his true fire.

_______

Cyber generated virtual fraud

Crass pictures of porn personified

Mechanical doll for the rod

Object of the masculine gaze

______

Discredit value of the whole

Just a sum of the parts

Prometheus rendered flames

Into the melding of opposites:

______

Man

Woman

Woman

Man

_____

Set the pyramid on its head

Zeus slain by ruined brow?

Words can change meaning,

Goddesses are immeasurable,

And society gains its freedom when…

Two halves merge into one,

 Their marriage breeds the chance

To embrace Dionysus.
