Ballade Of Dead Republics

Rating: 2.5

Tell me ye King-craft of to-day
Where is Athens, who made men free;
Then sank into stupor by the way,
Subdued by the Spartan tyranny?
And Rome that staggered to death, perdie,
Stabbed by the sword of Hannibal,
And bled by patrician infamy --
The Dragon of Greed destroyed them all!

Cleon and Pericles held sway

O'er the foes of Greek democracy.
