1. An offer to the gods

 

A crown of flowers

A glass of wine

A delicacy

A necklace of gold

A dress of silk

A treasure chest

A flame

An offer to the gods

 

You put your gifts

On a pedestal

Covered in cloth and candles

You kneel and pray

And hope the gods listen

You dream and hope

Someone heard you

An offer to the gods

 

They take what you give

They use what you give

They destroy what you give

An offer to the gods

 

They break

A crown of flowers

They spit out

A glass of wine

They choke on

A delicacy

They break

A necklace of gold

They rip

A dress of silk

They tip

A treasure chest

They mock

A flame

An offer to the gods

 

The merciless gods

Who take what you give

The rude gods

Who destroy what you give

Those miserable gods

Who ruin what you give

Those unreliable gods

Who never think of you

An offer to the gods

 

It will never happen

Again or again or again

Those who are so vain

Those who take and take

Those who think of themselves

Forever and forever and forever

It won’t happen again

An offer to the gods
