It Is The Fourth Of July For The Human Gods

They are looking to be
Gods: Zeus perched upon a
Pool raft while
The children create spectacles of
Green
And red
And lastly white
It takes little to phase men today:
The skies above
Airports and sped-up photographs
Of cities, a dog
Yawning in the sun. The
Royal families
Peer off, crests and
Latin phrases while the
Godlets outside
Pretend they fashioned the sky
Of light and
Sound
