Aesop Updated: Harvesting Time ©

At the creation time Zeus and his Council of gods laid out plans what kind of world they wanted to rule over. Each god was appointed over something or other. In the end the chief God asked what shall they do with Time.
‘It would be a headache to be held responsible for time.’ God of fire said,’ My glory is bursting in a blaze but then it is on its own.’Each god found some excuse to pass it over. Zeus irritated asked Demeter the goddess of Agriculture to take care of Time. She agreed on condition that Hephaistos fashioned it in a form she could take to the Earth. The lame- god thus made Time into golden grains which Demeter sowed around so finely that each grain was no more or less than what another would find.
Later when gods were discussing Demeters ingenious plan the lame god said,’ Demeter made man to be like unto gods with one grain. Clever!’ God of fire said,’Why didn’t I think of it before?’
