July Anomalies A- Z: Helel ben Shahar

How you have fallen, fallen to the
Earth, to the dust,
laid out and sprawling across the nations;
everyone sees your disgrace and
laughs at your shame.

But you said, “I will ascend,
even to that highest throne,”
Now you are low.

Scion of Dawn, Day Star,
Heaven’s brightest son,
accursed and darkened now,
helpless on your back
and fed upon by maggots and worms.
Remember this, you who would presume to glory.

This is part of July Anomalies A-Z, a creative writing exercise and not intended to be an altogether accurate picture of the creature described above.
