While statues fall to dust and nothing is remembered,
we fear you not Ozymandias; it was a poet who brought
you back into history. Words survive the onslaught of time,
for each generation of poets words are written differently,
but the message is the same: Do not forget you are mortal!
Beauty and power are ephemeral.
