Random Poem:

For Tomorrow We Die

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