Fall of the modern Pharaoh.

Fall of the modern Pharaoh.

A Poem by Fernando M. Dantas

This short poem is about the way some people deal with money and material things, leaving aside more important values.

Bought the world, asked for change
Taharka built in fire
Wall Street his empire
Did not see the Nile flood

With no poem written
With no beloved nor care
Under a roof he couldn't bare
Fled away to seek himself

Chained soul
Ran through a hundred fields
Wasn't worth a single one

Died alone
In a distant shore
Forgotten by everyone

Author's Note

Fernando M. Dantas
First of all, it's worth mentioning that English isn't my first language (not even the second, for that matter), so I apologize if this translation seems somehow too simplistic. Also, please don't hesitate to point grammar mistakes, I'll be happy to correct them. My appreciation in advance for any comments from eventual readers.
