Wonders~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Wonders

ancient and awesome

seven all told

astonishing hallmarks of

immature civilization

pretentious designs

grandeur wrought from

a deep squalid shame

the enslavement of enemies

chattel from bloodthirsty

conquest by deified tyrants

who dreamed as they died

they would own

the remainder of history

monuments made

fine of line and

aesthetic expression

yet wholly neglectful

of forces misjudged

tides of time and of men

ruthless ruinous perils

relentless of motion

securing the mists of forever

protecting those

far away precincts

those distant tomorrows

preserving an uncluttered

path to pristine possibilities

razing the structures of hubris

the damnable ego of memory

made to return to its state

of forgettable dust
