Time forgot from whence they came,
And even they forgot the same.
Arrived at first on our young Earth,
And then they caused the great Life birth.
Created birds and beasts on sand,
And then at last, created Man.
For eons long, they ruled as gods,
Commanding all with lightning rods.
Man became their fear of bane,
And so they spawned all Hell’s dark fame.
Though Hell’s own monsters drove their fear,
Man reached out for life, so dear.
Time was late, and Man spread wide,
They fought, and strived, and many died.
Then long at last did Man prevail,
And banished gods in icy veil,
Where long they wait to sleep and dream,
Await return to primal theme.
Man, it seems, shall reign until,
He decides their dreams fulfill. ©
