Mount Midas

There’s endless work to be done on the mountain of my shame
Shape it like a statue
Carve it into a Sphinx
I’m the Pharaoh god of my future
Though plans turned awry when Moses took all my workers though divinity, right up under me
I’m left here having to go solo with a mallet and chisel
Embodying Michelangelo on the mountain marble and making my own Moses
Ruling over it like King David
