The Great Game

the following is written for Magpie Tales, because i needed to go somewhere in my head today and they suggested an intriguing place....


O to be a Titan!
Emanating strength and power and reserve
Fly rhythmically above the earth
and in silent motion stir the heavens

I would carry the world in my arms
daring the others to play "keep away"
with the luscious blue orb
tucked safely in my grip

A fluid struggle would ensue
The other Titans chasing me
Reaching, straining rock-like muscles
Circle in merry-go-round fashion

O to be a Titan!
Emanating stealth and speed and cunning
You would turn a blasphemous face from me
you tiny, tiny man
