If he’d listened to his father, well then he never would have drowned,
but the happiness he felt is one he never would have found.
Gifts are dangerous when they are given and not earned,
and the lesson merely heard, well that’s never a lesson learned.
But by the time his father turned, the wax had completely burned,
feathers scattered on the waves, and they just rolled on unconcerned.
But for that small moment before he fell into the sea,
Icarus the headstrong had been completely free!
Kate Tempest is the best! Kate for Prez!!
