Hubris heaving

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

Filled to overbrimming

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