I'm not really good with similes, or would this be considered a metaphore...anyways, I'm not exactly familiar with the story. I saw someone post this somewhere, so I'm curious as to what it means.
It's not friendly and is sarcastic
because Icarus doesn't miss the sun. He flew too close and it killed him.
Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman's genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot his father's warning. The feathers came loose and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.
