Random Poem:

For Tomorrow We Die
InMyBlood

I'd watch the fluorescent light flicker and fail
 1
extinguish itself
 2
So reminiscent of the great Roman "light"
 3
That faltered plunging the world
 4
Into its state of Idiocy and Heathenism
 5
 
 
Time to dredge the pond
 6
see how much deeper we can go
 7
continue our quest for knowledge
 8
Science has it all figured out now
 9
Don't mind the mess
 10
We'll move the bodies later
 11
 
 
Seemingly all of this is recorded
 12
In the illuminated manuscripts
 13
May be difficult to see
 14
When everything is decorated
 15
In a cheap veneer of gold leaf
 16
 
 
So as I view the Glistening pages
 17
Inside a dim twilight lit room
 18
I wonder to myself
 19
"Isn't it about time for Rome to fall again?"
 20
