Prescription From The Gods

They told him all he needed:
a morsel of healthy pain
and the grace to manage it.

He turned into an angry bird,
combusted into smithereens of self-righteousness.
They shrugged in response, engineered a death gene
erased him from the book of immortals…

He died pleading, anonymous,
begging at the Court of Appeals,
reaching for what he called ‘fair judgment’.

…while pride marked the commencement of the human race.
