Juvenile Gods (or Zeus' "bad boy" Nephews)

oh! the portentious pastimes
of juvenile gods
toying with people as if
dunderheaded clods

wiggly, squiggly,
they prod and they shout
we've got 'em where we want 'em
then rub the buggers out

birth to death
seems the blink of an eye
played full tilt boogie
by tweenies in the sky
