S P Q R (Senatus Populsque Roma) , ((The) Senate And The People Of Rome) - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

U S A, C C C P,
Will they go very far? As far as S P Q R?
S P Q R, a proud representative set of consonances was a system of democracy,
With a dictatorship, an empire that transgressed many lands across wide distances.
S P Q R did go far through the centuries, no holds barred.
S P Q R an integration of socio-economic discrimination.
Based on a privileged few and those who allegiances would be true,
U S A, C C C P will they go as far?

Identification of not only geographical limitations but a symbol of a political condition,
As far as its’ subjects were concerned.

S P Q R, the color red flows in at least some way within the colors of this tribunal,
Between the centuries and other dimensional distances.
Is U S A, C C C P, a S P Q R; but newer?
But one thing cannot be truer,
After millenniums of S P Q R control the only known civilized world,
Nothing was more striking to see, to fill one with bewilder,
When I saw S P Q R, in Rome, on top of a water sewer.


(CCCP was the equivalent to the Acronym USSR. For those do not speak or read Russian C' are S's and P's are R's which probably stood for Soviet Socialist States Republic. This Observation was written before the Berlin Wall came down and the dissolution of the USSR causing it break up in many other countries, -- like the Roman Empire.)
