Hubris heaving

While complacency
And acquiescence
Grew and came to rest
For an age
Did people drift,
Trade their lives
That Golem blessed the Carrion
With precious jewels
To fill their vaulted, gifted nest.

Filled to overbrimming

Stirred emotion,
Mind to motion,
Makes beginning;
Wakes to shade
And, quickening, now,
Quickens, quickens
Weight from wait –
The Golden Bough
Of Hubris, heaving, breaks.
