ancient rome

Monday, August 23, 1999

Where once giants walked the earth and lived in statutes of marble, where citizens, born and conquered, raised eyes to the divine multitudes and lowered necks to chiseled law.

Where the great Caesar conquered and became a god and paved roads all led to his temple where aqueducts the size of stadiums and coliseums were built for the glory of blood, death, and entertainment, lies but rubble and half forgotten chalky memories.
