Bonaparte

A Poem by Joseph C Ogbonna
"

Napoleon Bonaparte 1769-1821

"
He that trod upon subservient Europe
with the imperial guards' fighting prowess,
did himself and his heartthrob the empress,
entrench thrones jointly owned by their hookup.
He that caused guns to rage on Europe's plains
and cannons to thunder on Egypt's sands,
sent hussars and mamluks to distant flight.
He usurped crowns for his dear siblings' gains,
and enthroned loyalists to head vanquished lands.
But was banished for good from France's sight
after a stunning loss on Belgium's plains.

A historical write of a character intent on taking what wasn't his. We built fortresses along our South Coast to stop him from invading us. We were successful in keeping him out. A much enjoyed historical trip written with eloquence. Thank you for the read.

A little man with big ideas and even bigger boots.
