Dying Satellite (Was/Not Was)

And so like Icarus with wings
breathing of Promethean fire
stolen from Zeus
cast down from heaven
a Satanic star tumbling
through the void
this mixed red and green lit
metaphysical mixed metaphor
tumbles down to Earth 
for the laughing hilarious
amusement of all who roam
all who crawl on dirt
all paying good money
for a public fireworks display
all those never understanding
this will be they someday
