Roman Empire Revisited

Crimson
and 
Velvet Semen

All a sort of
Ridiculousness now, 
without treasure
Trails, 
Bodies of Evidence
And enough tomfoolery
to induce gluttonous
Indulgence. 

And Caligula
would be proud, yes. 
But not without
the papyrus reeds
swaying, 
Dying. 

The sink is full of
Poison water. 
And I at least
with try and 
Cheat death

With a single
Drink.
