what we fear is the strength left in the dying beast
the will to rise, wounded but unencumbered
sides full of arrows and lungs full of blood
the mercy fled from tortured eyes
the last maddened leap towards anything at all
breaking steel on Baile's strand or
jumping ship with knife in hand
"I wil take you down, down
If it takes me
I will take you"

the waves have mastered him
the waves have mastered him

"An end to words. Deeds now.
The world is shaken.
The deep and secret way of thunder
is rent apart.
Fiery wreaths of lighting flash.
Whirlwinds toss the swirling dust.
The blasts of all the winds are battling in the air,

and sky and sea are one.
On me the tempest falls.
It does not make me tremble.
O holy Mother Earth, O air and sun,
behold me. I am wronged."


Aeschylus Prometheus Bound ln. 1187-1198.
