Men of Renown

mighty Hercules
in a prediluvian interview
reveals pained truths
the harsh realities
of the tortured psyche
of one born of sons of gods
and the too-beautiful
daughters of men
the talk show host
smiles and says
in perfect Nephilim accent
a life of power and fame
can be so hard
living in the public eye
everyone just waiting
for any little slip-up
when, after all
everyone's got
his own Achilles’ heel
