Toys of the Gods

Toys of the Gods

 
From Olympus Mount down to Earth
When the Master commands, each obeys
He sees them as of little worth
Zeus is Lord of all he surveys

Lesser Gods quake in his shadow
And homage each one to him pays
Lest his mighty voice should bellow
Zeus is Lord of all he surveys

The deeds of man matter little
Their words and tales, their songs and lays
All are but mere pointless spittle
Zeus is Lord of all he surveys

From upon high they are but toys
Like pieces in a game he plays
He’ll test the worth of men and boys
Zeus is Lord of all he surveys

And should Great Zeus have whim or will
To cast down each that to him prays
He’ll end all days just for the thrill
Zeus is Lord of all he surveys
