Eternal Relief

Two seconds to make him go

To free me from this pain and woe

A pill, a potion, a knotted rope

To relieve me from this misanthrope.

I think of the story of Prometheus when I read this, Jon.

That is epic. Like a trickster pretending to be God while disguised as a man.

Excellent and concise.?

A great deal of power in this Jon. It punches above its light weight. Completely unexpected - I'm glad I stopped by

Thanks, Po. Yes, it is. I was not in a good frame of mind when writing this. Was not sure whether to post or not, but I did. We all have our different sides. I am glad this one doesn't come out very often.

Your obvious philanthropist way is so at odds from your brilliant quatrain here. That last word is... is... The last word in absolute perfection my friend.

A nice little piece Jon. It doesn't take many words to convey a meaning.
