Hey call me Icarus, I'm erratic and unreliable, but fairly good with words so hopefully you'll forgive me. I'm also an extreme left revolutionary, bigots be warned. Here's a poem about the original Icarus.

Icarus caged, at the top of the tower

A moment, a chance, no time to hesitate

Jury rigged wings, risk all for freedom

A note of caution lost in flight


Icarus flies, wings against the sky

Whole for a instant, where flight is life

The past a cage, the future a blaze

But for now soul in the sky


Icarus falls, wings ablaze

Sun shines bright, without mercy

Reality bites hard, in the harsh light of day

Waxen dreams burn to ash


Icarus broken, on the barren earth

Smiling even as his life fades

This end was a price worth paying

Because before the end

Icarus flew
