Corruption Kills - Poem by Sandra Feldman

The Corruption that was Rome,
The melt down of civilization,
We don't need to walk the past,
To be under its stifling Dome.

All you have to do is look around you,
Shame to those who knowingly participate,
And condone, and accept the crumbling process,
The strangling of our morals and our nation!
In the end, we will all pay a heavy price,
For having ignored the death of decency,
And for having allowed the enthronement of Vice!

    The lessons of Ancient Greece and Rome are there to learn from. We need not repeat it but Augustus seems right around the corner. More tyrannical than Caesar himself. Great piece Sandra and a perfect 10 my dear friend. :) (Report) Reply
