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:







Set the pyramid on its head

Zeus slain by ruined brow?

No, he learned from Athena.


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.
