Veni, vidi, vici Julius conquers us The imperators' command and rule Inflation and decay ends Roman Britain Their legacy inhabits our grammar Should reigns supreme Over would and could

Michael: Well said. There is an imperative in "should" we don't find in could or would. "The road of good intentions" is paved with those lame notions. Thanks for reminding us, there's a difference in such an enjoyable way. I ain't never been very good at grammer even though I love her so. oldbuck

People who are endlessly talking about correct grammar always annoy my mother, and I thought of her when I read this poem. On a deeper note, what we must do is always supreme to what we might and are able to do.

Your poem has me questioning all of the shoulds in life. We miss so much!
