Pax Romana

Pax Romana

A Poem by Analgesia

Overpasses cast aqueduct shadows

Over roads that lead from Rome

Placid pilgrims clad in plebian garb

Rambling on and finding anon

Skeletons and ossuary bones

As marble as coliseum ruins

Silhouettes as still as death


Wafer thin men wondering why

Bloated Bacchanal bureaucrats

Fill spaces between columns and obelisks

Forget too easily history:

And never knew better than

Building temples to man
