Mystic Whispers: Icarus in the Sky

Icarus, Icarus, foolish lad! 
It’s the worst idea you’ve ever had
and there were others I thought were bad!

To soar to the stars, you demented bird,
takes more than wax wings, or hadn’t you heard?
My lad, you have flown to the height of absurd!

And yet, and yet, the impulse was grand,
though you never considered you’d have to land…
Yet, to be with the gods, lad…?  I do understand!
