Biscuits in the Fire

Biscuits covered in fire,
wrapped in the safety of cold
iron - molded into an oven by
Hephaestus' touch.

Flat dough defies the metal press,
rising, wrinkled and resolute,
to throw off dense chains, and
unfettered transforms stubbornly
in the heat into an unyielding
delicious breakfast treat.
